As your textbook explains when preparing a speech introduction, you should usually start by introducing the speaker.
This will help create an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation from the audience as they wait to hear what this person has to say.
Include the speaker’s background and a brief summary of what they will be speaking about.
It is also important to mention any sponsors or partners that are involved with this event. This should be done before introducing the body of your speech so as not to distract from it once you get started presenting the information.
