Would you be kind enough to introduce ~? Would you introduce~? What's the difference between 1 and 2 except for letters of each sentence? 1.Would you be kind enough to introduce yourselves and the organisations you represent? 2.Would you introduce yourselves and the organisations you represent?

2. Can be made less abrupt by simply by adding the word "Please" as in :- "Please would you introduce yourselves and the organisations you represent?"

The first phrase is a more polite, formal way of asking the question. If someone were to answer the question literally, they would answer "Yes" or "No", but the expected response is an introduction. The "be kind enough to" part is only there to imply politeness. The second phrase is not necessarily impolite or informal, but it is a more neutral way of asking someone to introduce themselves.

Number 1 is more polite where as number 2 is more like an order , therefore it gives off a slight rudeness to it. Hope this help. ^_^
