Chapter 10: Handling Questions Successfully

Speech presentations usually encompass a varied spectrum of elements, one of which is the addressing of questing being put forth by the audience. If there is such an interaction, whereby interesting and legitimate questions are begin asked, this can be taken to mean that the presentation was fairly successful in its goal to get the audience attention and participation.

Have The Answers

Therefore a presenter should be happy and more than willing to address any of the quires from the audience. However, there is also the very important exercise of ensuring the appropriate amount of preparation is allotted in order for the presenter to tackle such question effortlessly. Being able to provide the answers and ensuring that the answers given are relevant to the questions asked, is also equally important, as this will help to reassure the audience and put rest to their doubts effectively.
