Introducing Speakers

Club Meeting RolesIf you host a special event, you may be required to introduce speakers. Try these quick tips for delivering thoughtful speaker introductions:

  • Don't steal the show by making the introduction too long (60 seconds or less is sufficient), or by speaking on a topic that is in no way related to the speaker.
  • Grab the audience's attention with a great opening. This can be an inspiring quote, a humorous anecdote, or an impressive milestone the speaker has achieved.
  • Briefly mention the topic the speaker is addressing, but don't reveal too much about his or her speech.
  • Establish the speaker's authority and expertise. This information will help solidify with the audience the speaker's credibility as a subject matter expert.
