    Public speaking


    Before starting

    Shall we get started?

    I am afraid xxx can't be with us today.

    Let's get down to business!

    Can you all hear me?

    Can everyone see the screen?

    Has everyone received a copy of the agenda?


    Thanking listeners for being there

    Ladies and Gentlemen, good morning.

    Thank you for coming (in such large numbers / so many) today.

    Let me put this another way.

    I don't quite follow you.

    What exactly do you mean?

    Sorry, I think you misunderstood what I said.

    I tend to think that …

    Are there any more comments?

    Excuse me for interrupting.

    Let's get back on track, shall we?

    Let me go over the main points.

    We are running short of time.

    Good morning.
    !I am pleased to see so many of you here today.
    My name is Bridg. I am a nurse in the operating room at this hospital.
    Your training staff asked me to talk about the safety checklist we have to use before all surgery.

    with a short video, showing you the different steps a patient goes through before reaching the operating room.

    Well ! after this film? No?
    .............OK! So, . Did this film help you to define the potential risks for a patient out of control?

    -I am Jane. Yes indeed, it is really scary but we didn't see what the checklist is composed of.

    -There are twenty items to be carried out throughout surgery, and I would like you to find those items.


    -Great! You have found lots of them. ?

    -Yes, I would like to know whether it's hard to work as part of an operating room team.

    -If you don't mind please? But if you are interested, about that item.

    - I am afraid , so, now I'll give you the checklist and by saying that a change in the mentality of caregivers is required for this checklist to be usable. I hope you'll be largely supportive of it during your training in our department,
