Here’s how: Your Bio needs to include highlights of your career and life only your intro needs to be short, concise and must have people curious/smiling/alert/focussed so they lean in to what the MC or introducer is saying about you.

Commence by posing three rhetorical questions and provide a positive or negative about how the audience may be feeling in relation to those questions.

Next, give two credential lines that positions you as the expert/authority on the topic and something that the audience can understand that because you have achieved/done/working on a project etc has also equipped you to do something in your personal life they may relate to.
Link that to why you are presenting on the topic of the day and then include “please join me in welcoming (insert your name) who will (insert what your outcome will be).
