The next time you’re invited to give a speech, don’t send a standard bio. Instead, write your own introduction and include these five elements:
1. Relevant biographical details (custom-picked for each audience)
2. Something about the organization you represent
3. The title of your speech
4. Why this topic is relevant for this specific audience
5. Why this topic is timely
When you send a well-crafted introduction, you set the stage for public speaking success. When an audience hears a great introduction, they will like something about you and your speech – even before you speak one word!
Plus: a great introduction can create media buzz.
