Below is an example of a speech of introduction.
An introduction speech is a short speech used in business and personal situations to introduce another person.
The speech should be positive, complimentary and short.
The introduction speech includes some personal information about the person you are introducing and it is relevant to their current situation.
The speech of introduction could start like this:
"I'd like to take a few moments to introduce Jim our new warehouse manager. He's new to the company and to the area so I'm sure we'll all be able to show him a warm welcome."
It may include something of their background:
"Jim has worked for over 20 years in warehouse management and I know this experience will benefit us all. His knowledge of warehouse systems and his ability to instigate improvements will be essential for us to move forward as a business."
And finish with a welcome...
"So I'd like to finish by saying welcome Jim and we all look forward to working with you."
Using humour in an introduction speech can be good, but you need to keep it family friendly so not to cause offence.
