Writing and Controlling your Own Introductions…


Welcome to my second Speaker Snippets!

1) I want to share with you the importance of writing your own introduction for your talks as well as tips and tricks on how to control this important part of your presentation.

In my video above I share the importance of sending it to the speaker chair ahead of time, bringing extra copies, and how to handle it if they don’t do a proper introduction as you’ll then need to share with your audience why you’re qualified to be there to begin with.

Here are a few resources with some very valuable points on the way to write the best introduction possible to really prime the pump with that audience so they are receptive to hearing your message:

3) If you watched to the end of my above video you’ll know what I offered to gift you with, please just email me and I’d be happy to get that to you.

4) Lastly, a shameless plug for my consulting services. Even speakers with top-notch professional branding could benefit from having the eyes of a speaker agent look over what they’ve got to make sure they aren’t missing any opportunities to be more loud and proud about being a speaker. I would be honored if you would trust me with your time to share my expertise with you.

Here’s a testimonial from another speaker consulting client:

If you have suggestions for future issues either because you know of a great resource or it’s something you’d like to know more about, please reach out to me. I want to make these snippets as valuable for you as possible.

Until the next one…wishing you abundant blessings!

Speak On!!!
