Presenting to a Group

The Himmelsblogs and I saw a comedy show starring Jason Segel on Sunday night. We were pleasantly surprised when Segel greeted us at the door, asked us how many people we had in our party and then showed us to an usher. It put us in a good mood immediately. That was still on my mind when I read this excellent blog post on how to present to a group that was forwarded by a co-worker. There are a ton of good tips here but I want to add one, greet your guests and establish some goodwill before you start speaking. It worked for Segel, and hopefully it will work for us.
