Presentation Tip - Ignore Grumpy

Presentation Tip - Ignore Grumpy

Don’t get hung up over the one person whose body language suggests that he hates you. You don’t know what is troubling them. When speaking to one group I was pleased that the audience laughed and seemed to be enjoying my presentation. All except one person who sat with arms crossed and a grumpy face. Each time I looked at him my gut tightened. After the presentation he approached me and said with the same grump face, “You were the best speaker we have ever had.” Some people just look grumpy on the outside.

Don't focus on Grumpy. Instead speak to the 80% of the audience with which you have a chance to connect.
