Handle Q&A Sessions Like a Pro

How you handle the Questions and Answer session after your speech/presentation can have a significant impact on how you are perceived as a speaker.

There are two important things to keep in mind.

First, make sure you let the person complete the question before you start to answer. Otherwise you could be answering what you perceive the question to be instead of the actual question.

Secondly, repeat the question. This will serve a couple of purposes. It will insure that you are answering the correct question and it will insure that the audience knows the question as well. It will also provide you with a few extra seconds to formulate your response.
