  • Audience bill of rights How to avoid horror stories in presentations
  • Hi! I am your audience
  • I chose to attend your presentation despite all my pending work… View slide
  • I hope you have spent enough time to prepare your presentation View slide
  • Do not make me wait till there is enough crowd…
  • Start and finish your presentation on time
  • I like surprise climax only in detective novels…
  • In your presentation, I expect an agenda and the session duration
  • I am not a kid to sit and listen to your lecture…
  • Involve me
  • We are equally intelligent and responsible…
  • So, do not talk down … or beg
  • I am not a psychic to read your mind…
  • Tell me what I should do and why
  • I know you are not a walking encyclopedia…
  • So, when you don’t know something… don’t hide behind jargon $””&** is nothing but ##%%
  • You may be a whiz with Excel …
  • But, tell me what should I be looking at in your graphs
  • I do not get excited by statistics…
  • … till you tell me your source and the reasoning
  • I do not always carry my telescope…
  • So, make the fonts large enough for me to read
  • Your voice may sound irresistible when you talk in a husky whisper… Pss pss pss
  • But, I can not hear you clearly from the last row
  • I can completely understand your excitement in the subject…
  • But, stop making those distracting gestures
  • I know you love your slides…
  • But, when you talk to your slides and not me, I feel offended
  • I have not installed a recording machine inside my head yet…
  • So, summarize periodically
  • You may feel comfortable pushing all my questions towards the end… ?????
  • But, I cannot follow your logic when I am stuck Clarify my doubts instantly
  • I appreciate your big bang ending…
  • But, what are the next steps?
  • Finally, when I clap at the end…
  • I should leave with the satisfaction of getting enough value for my time
  • Will you fulfill my wishes?
