“Good morning, Miss Weesinger!”

I can’t count the times I’ve been in an audience when the speaker has tried this dull technique. It just doesn’t work. But there are alternatives that do.

  1. Couldn’t agree with you more. Especially the “good morning” when this comes after a very early wakeup call. Your alternative openings would be better received and might do a better job of grabbing the audience’s attention.

  2. Totally agreed. I, for one, abhor most repeating crowd chants outside of sports arenas. Particularly when forced to do so by an MC, speaker or moderator.

    Oh, and I also dislike speakers in the morning, or really anything in the morning unless someone is offering me a Mountain Dew!

What do you think?
