Remember the introduction of a persuasive presentation must begin with the MORE+E Principle:
O=Open. Make a statement that shows you are approachable.
R=Relates to the past. Refer to a past experience that relates to your topic.
E=Expertise. Tell the audience what qualifies you to make your recommendations.
+E=Evaluate your audience. Always know your audience.
