You know what? This is something that, no matter how many times I’ve done presentations or been asked to write an introduction of myself for a company site, or to include in an RFP, I absolutely hate. Mostly because I’m not good at it and don’t like talking about myself. But maybe, I am going to keep this article handy for the next time, and make sure I can answer these questions.
“An excellent introduction should do three things in less than two minutes: highlight you as a well-informed, qualified expert, excite the audience, and create a smooth transition into your speech.
In addition, a good introduction addresses these six questions:
Who are you? What are your qualifications and experience?
Why is your presentation relevant? What problems does it address?
What is in it for the audience? How will you solve their problems?”
