Start off strong:

Via The New Articulate Executive : Look, Act and Sound Like a Leader:

  1. Begin with the ending
  2. Personal Story
  3. Anecdote or illustration
  4. Rhetorical question
  5. Quotation
  6. Project into the future
  7. Look into past
  8. Humor

Anxiety levels drop after a few minutes so having the intro well-rehearsed gets you through the toughest part of the talk.
