Grab Audience Attention with Shocker Sentence

Grab Audience Attention with Shocker Sentence


Use this very effective way to get attention of an audience, especially at a luncheon.  Make a statement that surprises, startles, or challenges them.

Example: “The organization is going to change in ways you can hardly imagine over the next six months.”

Here are the three rules to make this technique work effectively.

  1. The statement should be one sentence only.
  2. It should hint at information that intrigues or shocks the listener and makes them want to hear more.
  3. It should dramatize the topic of the discussion.
