Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Overcoming problems, part of Management: Top Tips.
- Now what if something goes wrong in your talk?…Well, I just want to quickly cover…the two main things that might go wrong.…And one of them is that you're asked a question…that you can't answer.…People always have this fear even though…you're presumably the expert,…that's why you're doing the talk.…But what if somebody asks a really difficult question?…Well the answer is admit it.…Just say, that's a really good question.…I don't know the answer to that.…I'll find out and I'll get back to you.…What's wrong with that?…The second thing that can happen is that sometimes…there are people muttering or whispering at the back,…and it's really off putting,…and particularly with a big conference,…people at the back think that what they do doesn't matter,…that you can't see them or hear them.…
But of course you can,…and it distracts the people in front of them.…So what I would do if people are talking at the back…is I would say to them, "Are you okay there?"…Because it might well be that they're…asking each other questions about your talk.…
