This weeks Showboater is NAME and this weeks Speak is NAME.
If you aren't giving your program director your introduction when you are the Speaker, you are missing a fantastic opportunity. When we visit chapters and the Speaker is announced as "Here's Johnny!" We have to wonder, who's Johnny?
You have 10 minutes, 8 for your presentation and 2 for your Q&A. Your introduction gives your fellow members and guests more insight into who you are so you can build rapport and get more referrals. The introduction doesn't count in your 10 minutes so why not take advantage of it.
Here is a great example of the type of introduction you could provide.
- Accomplishments / Achievements
- Family Information
- Hobbies / Interests
- Final Introduction
