How to open your talk with a question

Speaking about Presenting

He starts by asking a question. When I watched his presentations over the weekend of New Zealand Toastmasters conference here in Wellington, I started to see that asking a question , seemed to be Mohammed’s “go to” method for starting a talk. The main thing to avoid is asking a trite or manipulative question that annoys your audience. Or, a question that gets the audience to consider something that they’ve never thought about before.
