While I was looking for some good communication lessons, tips and tricks, I stumbled upon Conor Neill.
Check out this “short” Video on “How to start a speech”. It is very simple and gives practical and useful tips on giving an interesting insight on how to capture the attention of the audience at the beginning of the speech.
He has a bunch of helpful Video’s on his youtube channel – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcZhBlipmIFlfZjt-Ji4Udg
You can also signup for a newsletter from him at his website https://conorneill.com/
Hope it helps
