I’d like to introduce you to a few of my closest friends

Hello, and thank you for having me - I'm honored to deliver a keynote speech to this group of wonderful people for a few specific reasons.
Firstly, I used to be a teacher, and I miss being around students. Your energy and intelligence never cease to amaze me. Thanks for all of the great conversations I've had with organizers, attendees and fellow speakers so far this weekend - I'm looking forward to a lot more.
Secondly, I'm used to speaking on very specific topics to a room full of industry professionals or seasoned Academics, some of whom have heard it all before, know everything, and yet still continue to attend conferences! It boggles the mind. In this case, I get to address a group of students about a topic entirely of my own choosing! Though you probably still think you know everything if college-aged me is any indication.
