Introduce speakers to get the audience ready to listen.
The main reason for an introduction is to get an audience ready to hear the speaker. Keep in mind is that the audience came to hear the speaker - not the introduction. A strong introduction is short and engaging and does not upstage the speaker or bore the audience. This article shows you how to prepare the person introducing you as a speaker as well as how to create a dynamic introduction for another speaker when you're the one introducing them.
