Do you have an intro slide in your presentations, webinars – even your product demos?
There’s almost always a place for one, and they serve a distinct purpose: To get to know you.
This slide is part of all my webinars and trainings. My audience doesn’t know me from Adam. They don’t know if they should like or trust me, nevermind follow my advice for the next 55 minutes.
