Becoming a great speaker requires discipline. The percentage of people who can actually knock it out of the park without preparation is very small. The percentage of people who believe they can, is greater. Unfortunately, with the later, we are forced to sit through talks that sound scattered.
Today it seems that Q + A takes up a large percentage of the overall time of a presentation. This format is popular because it allows the audience to direct the discussion. The reality is, very few people practice Q + A, and most people don’t really maximize their opportunity with Q + A. This is why I developed a quick reference guide for Handling Q + A Like a Boss.
As you are preparing for your next talk, review this guide as part of your preparation. If you find the information helpful, please share with others who may benefit.
