This is a short but important weekly tip.
Unfortunately this happens quite frequently.
You’re presenting to a group of people and the presentation is going well. People are engaged and participating in the meeting.
Then it hits the fan. The presentation gets derailed.
How? You come to a slide and someone asks you a question about some material on it.
You can’t answer it – you don’t know the material!
But you put it in the presentation. Did you think no-one was going to ask a question on it? That’s usually the material they do.
If you don’t know the materials don’t include it in the presentation.
Know all the material in the presentation. Period, every last bit of content.
You’ll give better presentations and, after all, learning to present and communicate is key to getting ahead in your career.
