Introduce me onto stage like this (in the voice of UFC announcer)

“Ladies and Gentlemen at XYZ 2021 and also joining in from around the world, Ittttttttt’s It’s time!
We are live! 55 minutes of undisputed pretty half decent practical tips, split into three rounds of several minutes coming directly at you at quite a ridiculously fast tempo.

Firstly, let me introduce the speaker as a freestyle presenter always using the best available tools to share his message. He stands in at 6-feet-4-inches tall, weighing in somewhere around 170 pounds.

He holds a professional mixed presenting record of about 500 workshops over 20 years on various topics like Change Management, Portfolio Management, Project Management, Leadership, Agile and of course several whip your ass into gear motivational seminars. His record includes 498 victories and 2 losses, with 364 presentations by technical knockout.

He is the current, reigning, and defending educational pedagogical potential performance booster in the world. Living, working and presenting out of Grorud, Oslo, Norway, the one, the only, the great and powerful in his dreams …..
