Preparing for the Unexpected

Reality check: most of your presentations won’t go exactly as planned, time-wise or structure-wise.

📛 Your CEO lets you know they actually have 30 mins to attend instead of the full hour.
📛 Your impatient client bombards you with questions in the beginning.
📛 The audience is 15 mins late due to technical issues with Zoom.

Expect the unexpected. Plan and practice for this.

Improvisation is a skill, a muscle to work on. 💪🏽

Write down a few such challenging scenarios. What would you then do? How would your presentation change? How would you adapt?

Ask your friends to play the part of the busy CEO, the prospect, a client that is playing on their phone…

Don’t just prepare for ideal circumstances- prepare for the worst. ⭐️
