Dale Carnegie (1888 – 1955) American Writer and Lecturer
Not sure about this quote.
Are we not supposed to stand up, tell them what we shall talk about, then talk about it, and finally tell what you have just told them, smile and sit down ?
Thanks for the comment. The old “Tell them what you are going to tell them. Tell them. Tell them what you just told them.” structure is fine as a basic structure, especially for novice speakers, but it is not the only structure possible. For many speeches or presentations, there are other and better options. This post by Rich Hopkins that delves into the subject.
Thanks, I take the point.
