Top 10 Stupid Speaker Introduction Mistakes

Hey DIYer,

Are you a speaker? Do you have a great speaker introduction?

In this month's webinar (coming on the 19th), we'll be talking about the 10 ways to get your audience to love you even before you take the stage to speak.

Here's a sneak peek at our content (spoiler alert!): One of those 10 ways is to have a great speaker introduction.

The purpose of your speaker introduction is to answer the three questions in the audience's minds before you open your mouth:

  • Who is this person?
  • Why should we believe this person?
  • What can we expect from this person today?

Here is a quick list of the top 10 stupid (because they are SO avoidable!) mistakes speakers make with their introductions. See the full article (link below) for why these mistakes matter, and how you can correct them.

Mistake #1: Not having a written introduction prepared. 

Mistake #2: Using your official bio as an introduction.

Mistake #3: Not sending your introduction to your host before the event.

Mistake #4: Not bringing two hard copies to the event.

Mistake #5: Not having a phonetic pronunciation of your name or other potentially problematic words. For example: Noize rhymes with "toys".

Mistake #6: Too long of an introduction that bores the audience.

Mistake #7: Too short of an introduction that doesn't answer the important questions.

Mistake #8: Not tailored for or specific to the topic and the audience.

Mistake #9: Missing qualifications that establish your credibility or authority.

Mistake #10: Reading your own introduction, which is awkward for you and the audience.

For tips on how to correct these mistakes, see the entire article here: ↓

Hearing the same things in different ways allows the information to integrate more fully. After listening to you, I am ever more understanding of the dance between listening and sharing.  When you speak, there is the intertwining of your years of experience.  I am gradually learning the various pieces that you put together so skillfully and gracefully.  Then you top it off with your powerful strength of ideation." ~ Caron MacLane, Circle Coach & Consultant, www.CaronCircleCC.com

Now, after your one-hour class--and the Friday deadline--I actually wrote it down and even went through some of those notes while I did it. Wow. I can't believe I did it! Thanks so much, Ronnie.
