How Do I Introduce a Keynote Speaker at my Event or Conference?

If you have been tasked with the job of hosting your conference or introducing the Keynote Speaker at your company event, here are some simple tips to help you achieve the best introduction possible.

First and foremost, keep it short and simple. Don’t let your intro go for longer than two minutes. The person you are introducing might have a list of credits a mile long, however the introduction is not the place to let the audience know about all of them!

Even though all speaker credits may seem equally important, highlight 3-4 credits you feel are the most important. It’s the speaker’s job to let the audience know about all of their credits and why they are relevant.

It’s best not to read out the speaker’s entire biography, you don’t want to give away their whole story before they get up on stage! Most biographies can be 500 to 1000 words long and you will need to reduce that to approximately 200 words. When you book a speaker through Keynote Entertainment, we will take care of this for you.
