Never end your presentation with a Q&A.
Got that? Don’t end your next presentation by saying, “Any questions?”
There’s no need to announce that it’s time for questions and answers.
You can do better.
Always plan a strong closing.
If you’re planning a Q&A session, you can have it near the end, but not at the end.
Answer audience questions, then deliver your closing statement.
Don’t risk letting your super awesome presentation drift off into whatever might be on the mind of the last person who asked a question.
Wrap it up, partner. Put a bow on that presentation. 🎁
