Introducing Others For the First Time

Having the capacity to introduce others for the first time in business situations helps give a strong impression for yourself and your business.  In business environments where team work is important introducing other members of your group in the proper way helps creates a smooth road for relationships and success.

Let´s imagine that you are in a meeting where you need to introduce a colleague to a potential client, partner, or boss. 

.

Intro Sentences:

  • I´d like to introduce you to ……………..
  • There´s someone I´d like you to meet, this is ……………….
  • Have you met …………………..?

 

Letting them know the position of the person being introduced:

  • He/She is responsible for……………..  (In plural: They are responsible for…..)
  • She/He is in charge of …………………   (In plural: They are in charge of……)
  • He/She is my ………… (followed by position in relation to you: Ex. colleague at the office)

 

Together these create sentences such as:

  • I´d like to introduce you to Mark, he is in charge of human resources.
  • There is someone I´d like you to meet, this is Laura.  She is my wife.
  • Have you met John? He is responsible for the shoe department.
  • I´d like to introduce you to Jenn and Stacy, they are in charge of customer relations.

 

Here is a great video with different clips of people introducing others in English:

(Some of these introductions are formal, others are informal, awkward, and funny).
