Aaaaaaaaaagh! This is a big one. Really big!
Never, ever, no not ever, allow anyone to introduce you as a speaker using their own words, no, no, no!
In my early years I had all sorts of introductions , and never once did they lift my heart or my audiences! And thats what a good introduction should do, make your audience keen to hear your messages, and you the speaker even more keen to share them.
Your introduction should make you bounce onto the stage!
So, write it yourself and if you get stuck give me a call. There is a secret formula. I will give it to you. No charge.
I promise you it will set you apart as a speaker and get you connecting with your audience well before you’ve even opened your mouth ….and thats magic!
