Sunday, January 23, 2011 What’s the difference between a speaker’s bio and an introduction? Many people don’t realize the difference and often say bio when they mean introduction. And many non-professional speakers mistakenly supply their bio as an introduction. Speaker Bio The speaker’s bio (biography) is meant to be read silently. The bio in it’s worst form looks and feels like a resume. A bio is like a history report.

The Eloquent Woman

Washington high school in Memphis--the lucky school that won the competition to have President Obama speak at its graduation--schools us all in introducing a famous speaker, with an intro that was short, wryly funny and wise beyond his years.

Sarah is a Wexner Graduate Alumni Fellow and has a Masters in Social Work from Columbia University and a Masters in Judaic Studies from the Jewish Theological Seminary.
