PodiumWise | Tips for advanced presentation skills

You answer a question and a few minutes later someone asks the same question.

You feel compelled to say something about having already given an answer.  As I said earlier when this question came up…

Don’t.  Let it go.  Answer the question again without the corrective dig.  Only this time, keep your answer short out of consideration for the people who heard you answer it the first time.

Sure, maybe this person should have been paying better attention.  But, you are a presenter not a school teacher responsible for correcting behavior.  And, it’s in your best interest to be seen as someone who is considerate of audience members, not given to embarrassing them.
