How to Write a Good One-Minute Speech About Yourselfby Amber Viescas
Whether introducing yourself to future business associates or a potential date, first impressions count. At a business networking event or speed date, you will make and listen to dozens of introductions. Writing a short speech helps you stand out from the crowd and set the tone for future interactions. A good speech should be tailored to the situation, from the topics discussed to the grammar patterns used.

Brainstorm your qualities and accomplishments. For a work-related introduction, briefly cover your current job, major accomplishments and qualifications, such as certifications. For a personal introduction, qualities like favorite hobbies and birth sign are more relevant, although you could still include your current job.
Choose a personal anecdote that illustrates your personality in a creative way. Employers want to hear about your accomplishments, and a personalized story helps you stand out. The story should take about 20 seconds to complete.

Write down your speech. Use active tense and active verbs. "I work" is preferable to "I am a worker," for instance. Use present tense whenever possible.

Practice your speech with a timer to make sure it is less than a minute. Read it to family and friends and solicit suggestions. If you need to shorten it, read through and mark redundant subjects and topics that don't fit with the rest of the speech.

Record and review your speech using a video camera. Pay attention to your mannerisms and projection of your voice. Smile and speak clearly.

First impressions have a big impact on how others perceive you, so how you introduce yourself to others is extremely important. Many people call an introductory speech an elevator speech, because it should be succinct enough that you could introduce yourself and tell someone about your goals or interests in the time it takes to ride an elevator.[1] It may also be called an "icebreaker" speech, as it breaks the ice and lets others get to know you.[2] Consider your words carefully when you write a speech introducing yourself. Crafting a good self-introduction can either build or harm your credibility.
