    Hi! Can you please tell me if these two phrases are correct:

    a short introduction to yourself / a short presentation of yourself

    Which one of them sounds better? It should be a title for a short text where someone introduces himself. Thank you!

    Neither of them sounds good to me. You can hardly introduce yourself to yourself. A presentation is something like a talk. The chairman gave a presentation of the firm's new products. He showed them to the audience and talked about them.
    You could try something like A few words about yourself. E.g. I'm Joe Smith. I'm the chief engineer and I've been working for Brown & Co. for ten years.

    How about “a brief personal introduction”?
