This was a very clear and focused discussion on the topic. Great examples too. Thank you for sharing.

Gotta ask - are those actual presenters being a bit too earnest, or just mediocre actors pretending to be presenters? Either way the points about what kinds of things to say are valid.

Their content was strong but their personalities were nonexistent. Most of the presenters were lifeless and boring. No emotion or energy... The bearded guy was the only one who did not appear robotic.

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.
