I feel sorry for that 19% that start a sales presentation with a joke. It sure is hard to recover if that joke bombs.
Great advice.

As a sales trainer and profesional speaker for 21.5 years I didn't always start my presentations with a story.

But I do now.

Good advice . . .

I agree, people react better to a story rather than a joke. Especially if the story is personal.

Good idea. I think the better way is to point out a memorable sales in your presentation and go forward with that throughout the presentation

Hi Josh,

I agree with you that telling a humorous story is much better than a joke. A storyline is in a better position to align and engage your audience.
