End the Q&A with a Final Summary

The end of the Q&A can be an important opportunity for you to retake control of the session and drive home once more the key message of the presentation. It lends a professional touch and ends the show on a positive note. Take action to end the talk when the productivity of the Q&A session has waned rather than letting it drag on while participants drift away. If the allotted time is up, call this to the attention of the group and prepare to wrap it up, unless key participants choose to extend the time.

Your summary comments might go like this: "We've run out of time, and I'm pleased that so many of you are interested in further discussion. Let me summarize by saying that our proposal offers the government a low-risk, low-cost alternative that promises a major technical advance toward practical solar energy. Our team is ready to get started."
