Description
In this video, Andy criticizes the habit many of us have of starting a speech with an apology. We commonly hear things like "Sorry, I'm a bit nervous/ haven't had time to prepare." Andy confronts the reality of starting a presentation with a statement of this nature, and encourages avoiding starting this way. Instead, he advises starting a speech confidently with a powerful opening statement as opposed to an apology.

Short and direct video as part of the 'Public Speaking Shortcuts' series.
