Tips for writing Bio Descriptions Show Bio description tips Select to view tips OLLI members are aware that this community is blessed with numerous multi-talented individuals. However, your bio should be confined to letting them know why you are leading a particular class. 1. Begin with your first and last name, written the way you prefer, i.e., Joe Jones or Joseph Jones or J.J. Jones. 2. Include aspects of your background and experience that relate to the topic that you are presenting; do not include all of your credentials. 3. Adhere to the limit of 30 words.

NOTE: John Smith may have a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering or have taught high school French for 35 years. However, since he is presenting a program on biking, his experience in trail riding is all that his bio should reflect.
