Introduction scripts

NOTE: We've crafted a very specific, short intro script for Matt's sessions. Please use this script (instead of a bio) to introduce him to the stage.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is my great pleasure to introduce our next speaker for the {Insert event name here}.

This person is a seasoned entrepreneur who has founded and managed not one, not two, but three marketing and communication businesses.

However, it's worth noting that only one of them failed spectacularly, which just goes to show failure is an option!

But that's not all - our speaker is also well known for having an insatiable curiosity about how the world is changing.

This curiosity led him to his calling: helping people become "future-ready" in an uncertain world.

He's written two books on the subject, namely "The Future is Now" and "Future Hackers", both aimed at helping people create positive futures for themselves.

What's truly remarkable about our speaker is that he doesn't just talk the talk - he walks the walk. He lives many of the ideas and concepts he talks about, which makes him a true authority on the subject.

So, without further ado, please give a big, warm {Insert event name here} welcome to the optimistic futurist, Matt O'Neill!
