Sample Self-Introduction Makeovers
"After" Versions

Review the "before" versions of self-introductions.

In rewriting these "30-second commercials," I made them more vivid and concise.  I avoided beginning with the company name, since studies show that people usually don't absorb a name when it's the first thing they hear.  I also eliminated extraneous details and improper usage (e.g., "impactful" is not a word).

To make your comparisons easier, I've included both the "before" and "after" versions below.

The "After" Versions
