Manage the Response
Some people feel that a presentation that generates no questions is a success. But if your listeners are engaged, they are very likely to have questions. Embracing those inquiries can allow you to offer greater detail in areas that matter to your audience.
Timing the Q&A
Many speakers take questions after they present. This allows them to complete the talk within a specified time and to ensure the audience has the whole picture. If you choose that approach:
• Make your transition to the Q&A session clear.
• Tell the audience how much time is left for Q&A.
• Maintain control of the Q&A session by repeating each question and giving the answer to the whole group, not only to the questioner.
