  • jmtcz Jeanne Trojan, Executive Presentation Trainer and Coach at Outstanding Presentations @thiennq and @erwin I think there is a big difference between 'humor' and 'jokes'. Humor done well can be a great way to get your audience's attention and keep them listening. But a 'joke' is just dangerous, I think, especially in an international setting. 8 months ago

  • ErwinHogeling Erwin Hogeling @thiennq I agree with you. A good (on topic) joke may loosen the crowd and lower the bridge for interaction. I speak of Dutch presentations: The crowd listens, the speaker speaks. With a good joke it lowers the borders between both. 8 months ago

  • fredmiller No Sweat Public Speaking! at No Sweat Public Speaking! One suggestion, Jeanne:
    Set aside time, before your Closing, for questions. Tell attendees, in your Opening, that you’ll be taking questions at that time. Here are some reasons to handle questions like this:
    The Closing is the Closing! – Period! The last thing you say will be the first thing they will remember. (That’s why you want a Strong Closing.)
    If you have a great ‘Call to Action” Closing, then take questions, the impact of the Closing will be lessened.
    Sometimes the Q&A can go south with someone questioning your expertise or parts of your presentation. The time for the event comes to an end, and the difference of opinions is the last thing they heard – and the first thing they remember.
    Taking questions throughout a presentation requires exceptional time management.
    Think of how many presentations you’ve attended where half the slides and presentation had to be rushed into the final few minutes because the presenter took questions throughout their talk.
