The content structure of the opener and closer, I can see as being very important, and I concur completely.

However, generally, although hand gestures can be acceptable where appropriate, there were far too many in all examples. They served only to distract to varying degrees.

It’s important - along with well-structured openings and endings - to convey the information well. In this way, I felt the woman with the frizzy, curly hair was best... she was a little more animated and made her content interesting with the correct *natural* inflections etc. I’m afraid I wasn’t impressed at all with the others... they sounded too rehearsed and almost stilted.

It depends on many factors: presentation topic, audience, setting, program objectives. The first line of any speaking program is best when it gets an audience's attention without distracting from the coming program. The closing is best when it anchors the results. There are more than 180 video clips on my YouTube channel addressing various public speaking techniques and methods.
good luck
I phone friends all the time
