Presentation Opener Idea -- Bill Lampton ([email protected])

Here is a thought-provoking opening for a presentation. Right after your host introduces you, ask: "How many of you can tell me who Butch Harmon is?" Add quickly: "If you know the answer, please don't say it, just raise your hand." Usually no one knows, or at most one or two people will raise a hand. Then ask: "Another question: How many of you know who Tiger Woods is?" Again, ask for a show of hands only. Almost everybody will know this answer. You comment "Notice that almost nobody knows who Butch Harmon is. Butch Harmon is Tiger Woods' coach. He is the person Tiger goes to for instruction. Think about that. If the greatest golfer in the world needs guidance, then we can assume that the greatest professional workers -- like you -- will benefit from what a coach offers. Today, I am your Butch Harmon. A couple of months from now, maybe no one in the public will know my name. But they will see a big difference in your performance. You will become a more accomplished professional." At the end of the day, say: "I have enjoyed being your Butch Harmon, your coach today. Now, go play like Tiger!"
