Powerful Introductions

At every Leadership Forum  participants are provided an opportunity to practice their introductions. We teach an effective way to say what you do in less than 5 seconds that has a positive effect on your personal brand.

By personal brand, we mean how others see you.  When people see you or your name in print, two points will come to mind:

1.  Who you are (values, strengths, personality, etc) and

2.  What you do (who you serve). 

To leave a lasting impression and start an insightful two-way dialogue, we suggest dropping your title and company name and simply state who you serve and what you do for them. 

Here is a personal example:

Before: I am the founder, chair and facilitator of Caledon’s Leadership Forum for Women.

After:  I lead an empowerment networking group for heart-centred professional women. 

During the event a couple volunteers help us teach this part of our program by sharing their own 5 second intro and then we open the floor for others to try.

Click here for a copy of the exercise if you would like to prepare yourself for this part of the meeting ahead of time.  Feel free to contact me or a member of the Forum Team if you have any questions.
