Let Me Introduce … The Art of Introducing a Speaker: Practical Tips & Techniques by Rae Stonehouse, Okanagan-based Author, Speaker, Speech/Presentations Coach, Power Networker & Toastmaster Extraordinaire.

Have you ever heard this said “Our next speaker needs no introduction …” Well, if that’s true mister/madam emcee, then why do we need you? As a Master of Ceremonies your role is to build excitement about each and every speaker or presenter that is on your agenda.

While developing and honing my speaking skills at countless Toastmasters meetings and introducing hundreds of speakers and their speeches over the years, I have developed an appreciation for the value of an effective introduction. Whether you are introducing a speaker/presenter, presenting an award or introducing a person that will be taking on a role in the program, a professionally written and delivered introduction can exponentially increase the effectiveness of the person that you are introducing.
