It's quite something to see a frozen lake! This place is 10 minutes from my place and I just shot these.

Today I had a twitter exchange with +florian b. mück. If you are not familiar with twitter, keep in mind that it has a limitation of 140 characters per message, which do not allow for very elaborate composition.

He said:
"Next time you start your presentation saying, 'Hello...', go back to your seat and start all over again."

I was curious to know what was the problem, so I asked:
"How would you start the presentation? Skip any acknowledgment to the audience and jump to the meat of the presentation?"

He immediately replied:
"5 patterns: Quote, polemic phrase (+resolving), one word (essence of your message), personal anecdote, (rhetorical) question."
"will write a blog post on this matter today. thx ;)"

Wow... not only did he take the time to reply, but he was able to pack all that info in 140 characters.

True to his word, he wrote a great post elaborating more on the 5 patterns that you should use to begin a speech paying special attention to the first sentence. Go take a look!
