The 4 elements of a great introduction

Published on: 17th March, 2022

A good introduction is essential to foster a great group dynamic.

An introduction is crucial on any type of programme - whether you’re leading a guided tour, an educational programme, a 15 minute in-gallery conversation or an online session. 

At this stage, group participants are learning what to do, how the tour or programme is going to operate, what is expected and what is acceptable.

It’s your role to give them the orientation they need.

Today I’m talking about introductions - why they’re important and the 4 elements of a great introduction.
