Should you introduce yourself when most audience members know you? Amanda was making a presentation in her home town. Should she have done a self introduction?
Every speaker deserves a thoughtful and helpful introduction. If you are not being introduced, prepare to introduce yourself.
Beyond letting the audience members know who you are, an introduction establishes your credibility on the subject.
It should grab attention and answer the question - why you? The best introductions are personal and two-way. Avoid lengthy titles and long bios, especially if they already know you. Share something relevant about yourself and compliment the audience to establish a connection.
