At a place where a keynote speaker is needed, for example a graduation or a meeting, it is essential to introduce them properly. That person is there to encourage and give words of wisdom to the audience. If the introduction is not well executed, this can bore the audience and make the job of the speaker much harder.
Get the Background Information
The master of ceremonies needs to say something about the background of the speaker. This can be done through research or briefly interviewing the speaker before the event. Make sure the information is accurate and the speaker is happy with it before it is broadcast. Also, make sure that it is interesting and it entices the audience. For example, it could be information about his or her special achievements and noteworthy accomplishments as a keynote speaker.
Practice Makes Perfect
The person who is to introduce the speaker needs to make sure he or she practices the introduction. This can be done by reciting it in front of other people. Getting other peoples’ advice on the delivery can help improve it and make it more interesting to listening to hear. The audience can always tell whether time and practice has been put into an introduction.
Overall, the introduction of the keynote speaker is very important and work needs to be put into it to make the entire event successful.
