Guilty?Presentation didn’t finish on time | Couldn’t demo what was planned for | Lost grip with the audience after minutes | Multiple people walked out of the roomafter sitting in my presentation for only 10 minutes | Was shocked to see the feedback scores and some of the feedback, let’s blame it on the attendee?
