PodiumWise | Tips for advanced presentation skills

Meeting hosts often struggle with how to introduce a speaker.

It’s unlikely they have ever been taught how to do it and they have a hard time deciding what bio content to include. 

If you are the speaker, this can mean that you receive a less-than-adequate introduction.  You don’t get the strong boost of credibility you need.  In worst-case situations, you actually have to overcome misperceptions that have been created.

To avoid this, everyone should have a suggested introduction that they can e-mail to a meeting host.  Far from being annoyed that you didn’t leave it to them, most hosts are grateful they don’t have to work up something.  They will thankfully take what you gave them and use it.

Then you get an introduction that positions you well with the audience.
