"I recently joined a professional association and introduce speakers a lot. What is the most effective approach?" Robin asks.
Every speaker deserves a thoughtful and helpful introduction. The best introductions are two-way, just as personal introductions are. You introduce the speaker to the audience and the audience to the speaker, establishing a common bond between them.
Your introduction should grab the audience's attention and make the audience aware of the importance of the upcoming talk.
An effective introduction answers these four questions:
Why this speaker?
Why this subject?
Why this audience?
Set the mood and ensure your introduction is no longer than two minutes in length.
