  24. 24. Difficult audiences Do not get angry with the Audience your strong point is being calm and good natured, thus keeping control. Hostile question – disarm them, thank person for question (make them feel good) Hostile question – hand back, if they couch an opinion as a question ask them what they think Hostile question – pass over, only works with 15 or less audience. Pass question to another audience member who you know. Hostile question – defer question or park. Mr Angry – empathy is the key, dont have to agree but you do need to listen and understand their point.
  25. 25. Difficult audiences Attention If audience attention wavers you can - audience may be tired / thirsty, give them a break, ask for feedback (may not be suitable) - you may be more interested than them, so in this case elicit feedback from them, or get them to work with each other. - finish presentation professionally. Heckling - smile and ignore - ask them to shut up and leave the room Anticipation – raise first, meet trouble makers firsthttp://presentationzen.blogs.com/presentationzen/2006/02/presenting_unde.html
