Ten Things to Avoid in the First 10 Minutes of a Group Presentation

How you deal with the opening of a sales meeting will have a lot to do with the success of the meeting. 

  1. Don’t be dogmatic and force your way of thinking. Let the audience come around to your way of thinking by promoting dialogue. 
  2. Don’t twist a participant’s statement to fit your need. 
  3. Don’t state that a person is wrong. Let facts, logic, and group opinion do it. 
  4. Don’t tell the group what to do. Persuade members to act. 
  5. Don’t deliver more material than the audience can absorb. 
  6. Don’t argue with anyone. 
  7. Don’t take sides. 
  8. Don’t try to be funny if you’re not. 
  9. Don’t lecture. Ask questions. 
  10. Don’t start the session with a complicated task.
