The introducer sincerely means not to consume too much time, but in the endeavor to do justice to the occasion or the speaker he becomes involved in his remarks until they wander far from his definite purpose. He wearies the audience before the important speaker begins. An introducer should not become so unconscious of his real task as to fall into this error.
In other cases the fault is not so innocent. Many a person called upon to introduce a speaker takes advantage of the chance to express his own opinions. He drops into the discourtesy of using for his own ends a condition of passive attention which was not created for him.
Public Speaking by Clarence Stratton
One large audience which had assembled to hear a lecturer was kept from listening to him while for twenty minutes the introducer aired his own pet theories. Of course members of the audience discussed among themselves the inappropriateness of such remarks, but it is doubtful whether any criticism reached the offender.
In introducing a speaker never be too long-winded. More summaries and resources for teaching or studying Public Speaking.

You must learn to speak by speaking. The Apostle Paul tells us that every man must work out his own salvation.
All we can do here is to offer you suggestions as to how best to prepare for your plunge. The real plunge no one can take for you. A doctor may prescribe, but you must take the medicine.
Do not be disheartened if at first you suffer from stage—fright. Dan Patch was more susceptible to suffering than a superannuated dray horse would be.
It never hurts a fool to appear before an audience, for his capacity is not a capacity for feeling. A blow that would kill a civilized man soon heals on a savage. The higher we go in the scale of life, the greater is the capacity for suffering. For one reason or another, some master—speakers never entirely overcome stage—fright, but it will pay you to spare no pains to conquer it.
Daniel Webster failed in his first appearance and had to take his seat without finishing his speech because he was nervous.

Gladstone was often troubled with self—consciousness in the beginning of an address. Beecher was always perturbed before talking in public. Blacksmiths sometimes twist a rope tight around the nose of a horse, and by thus inflicting a little pain they distract his attention from the shoeing process.
One way to get air out of a glass is to pour in water. Be Absorbed by Your Subject Apply the blacksmith's homely principle when you are speaking.
If you feel deeply about your subject you will be able to think of little else. Concentration is a process of distraction from less important matters. It is too late to think about the cut of your coat when once you are upon the platform, so centre your interest on what you are about to say—fill your mind with your speech—material and, like the infilling water in the glass, it will drive out your unsubstantial fears.
Self—consciousness is undue consciousness of self, and, for the purpose of delivery, self is secondary to your subject, not only in the opinion of the audience, but, if you are wise, in your own. To hold any other view is to regard yourself as an exhibit instead of as a messenger with a message worth delivering. The youth subordinated himself to the message he bore. So must you, by all the determination you can muster.
Say this to yourself sternly, and shame your self—consciousness into quiescence. If the theater caught fire you could rush to the stage and shout directions to the audience without any self—consciousness, for the importance of what you were saying would drive all fear—thoughts out of your mind.Or if you run into problems with the download process contact me via my product support page.
