A lesson from TV people: how to tease

I spent three decades in television and the one skill we had to master was writing a 'tease.'

A tease is a short statement or question that whets the audience's appetite for things you will cover later.

TV shows are loaded with teases. We tease from the beginning of the show to the very end...and then at the end....we tease tomorrow's show.

Learning to tease in your presentation is a valuable skill.
