Pete,

What a great blog! Thanks for all the terrific advice.

One thing I'd like to add regarding intros is how important it is that the intro tell the audience what they'll get out of listening to you. Too many intros focus on the speaker and not on the content of the speech. It's especially important that the intro not be a repeat of what's printed in a program that audience members have right there in front of them. Audiences love intros that build anticipation or surprise them in some way!
