Presenting Under Stress

Ever have to present under stress?
Community meetings about filters, porn in the library, new branches and removing old trees? Anything? Who says libraries can’t be controversial? Ever been sabotaged by an audience member?
It’s probably a good thing to be controversial since it can mean you’re somewhat relevant if someone in the community gets riled.
Presentation Zen, my favourite presentation skills blog, has a good posting this week on here.
Some helpful links to other sites incude:
• Dealing with difficult speaking situations
• Advice from 3M on dealing with Hecklers
• Dealing with disruptive audience members
• How to handle difficult audiences
• Handling various forms of audience disruption
• Dealing with difficult audiences
• Dealing with difficult negotiators
• Presenting to difficult audiences
• Dealing with tough questions
• Do’s and don’ts for dealing with difficult people
• Dealing with difficult people
• Dealing with hecklers and “snipers”
• Advice for stand-up comics
• The BBC on why people heckle
Worth remembering next time you have a crisis.
