Serious Q & A Sessions

Lots of presenters tend to make their biggest mistakes during their question and answer sessions.

The speaker does a good program, has a powerful close, opens the floor up to questions, answers them well, and then --
-- fades off the stage into oblivion.

So sad, but why?

The lack of a second powerful close after the question and answer period could negate much of the impact you had. You took the time to create the initial powerful program and presented it well with what you learned in your public speaking course, why waste all of that effort by not doing a second closing?

Make sure you have two good closes whenever there is a possibility of a Q & A session. Make the session end on a memorable note.

A "trick" from my public speaking course:

Purposely leave out material that you know will evoke certain questions. When the questions come, give a pre-planned answer that appears spontaneous. They'll think you are a genius.
