It's a good idea to prepare your panel by having a pre-event briefing that convenes all of your panelists in one place or at one time. On the day of the panel, keep your introduction for each panelist brief. Rather than simply regurgitating a name, title, and company - your audience will likely already have that handy in a session description or similar - convey instead their perspective or point of view in a single sentence: Why is this person passionate about the subject at hand? What's their angle on an issue?
