Commanding the Room During Q&A

How to Effectively Answer Questions with Poise and Confidence

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Prepare in advance by developing a list of potential questions and determining when to take questions.
  • Practice boundary setting and effective listening skills to allow for better “command of the room”.
  • Answer questions succinctly while supporting claims with relevant, memorable content.
  • Manage challenging questions with poise and politeness.
  • Wrap up the Q&A session effectively.

This workshop is highly interactive so that participants get real-time experience controlling the session and answering questions. Participants will work individually or collaboratively to determine “best answers” to a variety of questions.

At the conclusion of this workshop, all presenters will have direct experience managing a Q & A session, delivering complete and competent answers, and handling tough questions.
