Answering Questions

Prepare for questions.

You should be able to anticipate most of the questions you receive. Practice answering them. Prepare for the worst and everything else will seem easier. Some speakers prepare back-up visual aids, to be used specifically when answering anticipated questions.

Don’t preface your answer.

When a speaker starts an answer with, “That’s a very good question; I’m glad you asked it,” it may be a sign that the speaker is unsure of the answer. At the end of your question-and-answer session you can say something like, “Thank you for all your excellent questions.”
