As an intro - find a really poorly written set of instructions (or make
them up) and follow them to the letter. For example, how to tie a neck
tie. Just watching a three minute demo of someone struggling to do
something using poorly written instructions, will be enough to get their
attention. Remember the "building a peanut butter sandwich" thread several
weeks ago?

Once that's over, you can use some of the mistakes as points to your
speech, (understanding why the neck tie is important, knowing how to tie
it, the image a properly tied neck tie projects etc.)

Good Luck!
