There will be occasions when you will be formally introduced at the meeting at which you are delivering a presentation.
On these occasions, carefully create and send in advance to the organiser a script of what you would like said by the person introducing you.
The introduction is your opportunity to share with the audience why you are the person to be speaking to them and how they will find it worth their time listening to your speech.
Consider what it is that you would like the meeting attendees to know about you, your experience and the subject of your presentation?
Your introduction may include your: -
- Awards or achievements
- The subject of your presentation.
Aim to cover each of the key points you’d like shared in a few short paragraphs.
A short introduction will make it easy for your introducer to read and be long enough to create interest both in you and your presentation.
