Tips on Making Great Introductions

  1. Ask for a biography rather than a resume.
  2. Beware of canned introductions.
  3. Interview the speaker if possible.
  4. Make sure your introduction answers the questions, “Why this speaker?”
  5. Be upbeat!
  6. Share something personal about the speaker.
  7. Don’t steal the speaker’s thunder or material.
  8. Don’t say, “Our speaker needs no introduction.”
  9. If you are going to use humor, clear it with the speaker first.
Working with Tiller Group is a no-brainer. Easy to work with, professional, great service and outstanding speakers! I won't go anywhere else for professional speakers and trainers. Your team always makes me look good - I love the enthusiastic 'great job' that I get from my members, and all I do was call Rich Tiller!
