When you meet someone that you want to connect with or perhaps you have an audience that you need to address, it is important to let them know (if they don’t already), who you are and why should they care about what it is that you have to say. It is far from about the business of being confident or lacking thereof. Rather it is a courtesy that you need to indulge to someone in reality. In this famed culture, we sometimes build up this sense of bravado about ourselves and assumes that everyone else are aware of it and we come in thinking that introductions are not necessary, but in reality, it is very much so. Even very famous people gets blank stares or the unassuming attention when meeting strangers. So do yourself a favour and start to perfect and practise that two important questions when introducing yourselves.
