Introductions Slide (all rights reserved)

When I ask everyone to introduce themselves by going around the room, I usually ask who they are, where they are from within the organisation, and a question that is relevant to the topic.  For example:
1. Your name.
2. Your role and workgroup (or something similar).
3. A significant issue you have to deal with when managing projects.
3. Your biggest challenge in managing your time.
3. The nature of your leadership responsibilities.
Something similar.

This is useful for me, to 'place' people in their role and in terms of their situation; and so I can refer to them by name throughout the session.  It is also useful for the other participants who get to know their fellows, and hear where they are from too.
