Inigo Montoya – Masterclass on introducing yourself

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. Remember Inigo Montoya: Polite greeting, name, relevant personal link, manage expectations.

Such a fun meme that went viral a while back, and now my post on this theme is by far the most viewed on this daily blog on leadership.

Hmm, so now let me try this out, using the example of introducing myself to someone I am being referred to by an existing client, where they are making the introduction as they feel that person may be someone who could benefit from working with me.

“Hello. {polite greeting} My name is Tom McCallum. {name}

My client and your friend suggested we meet up as they feel you are an amazing leader who is hungry to get to the next level. {relevant personal link}

I only work with such people. Let’s talk bravery. {manage expectations}”

Challenging, perhaps, though a little less so than” you killed my father, prepare to die!

Hey, I’ll take any excuse to gratuitously reference one of my all-time favourite movies 🙂

There is a serious point here though, I love the simplicity of the four-step process.

How do you introduce yourself?

Oh, and now I’ve introduced myself, please go to the #BeMoreYou page and see how closely you fit the four key qualities I identify for leaders.

If you feel this fits well with you, I’d love to meet you or get on a video call to talk #OpenLeadership. Contact me and let’s set it up.

My clients say I “see what others don’t see”. Experience for yourself, book your 30-minute call now.
