Very good point! Speeches have to keep the listener hooked for the whole duration, and setting the tone at the beginning is helpful in doing so. But, its quality and not quantity

I think the first few minutes of a speech are just as important as the first paragraph of a book. One of my businesses is that I work as a script reader for a film production company. My other job is professional speaker.

People have very short attention spans and get bored easily. Hook them in the very beginning, whether it’s a book or a speech, or you’ve lost them.
