Opening statements like these are counterproductive for your presentation:
- I’m nervous
- I hate microphones
- I’m not very good in front of crowds
- I will do my best to inform you
- Please forgive me
Especially, don’t apologize or come up with excuses for your ability as a speaker, Because, you’re alerting both your audience and yourself that you intend to fail, or at the best, you plan to be boring.
