Introductions

We all know that first impressions are important, if you are the speaker, being introduced properly is vitally important.

The introduction that the emcee gives about you  can create a great first impression or leave people wondering why they are sitting there.

Ensure that you have your introduction prepared in advance so that the emcee doesn’t have to wing it on the day.

A proper introduction should be less than a minute and include the following:

  • Topic – What the speech is about – grab the audiences attention.
  • Importance – Why this topic is important to the audience and how they will benefit by listening – peak their interest.
  • Speaker – Who you are and why you are qualified to speak on this subject – have something personal about yourself as well, this helps the audience to connect with you as the speaker.

Having a well written introduction will make you look like a professional speaker and will go a long way to making that great first impression.
