Delivering a better presentation / training course. No.8. Don’t criticise the sales person, equipment or person who set up the room!

This is the eighth in a series of posts where I plan to discuss my ideas, tips and best practices for delivering a great presentation / training course. Don’t criticise the equipment, sales person, or person who set up the room!

Time for another quickie.

Never criticise equipment , the sales person who didn't check the pre-requisites, or person who set up the room in front of the delegates.

If there is a problem, don't externalise.

Remember, it's your gig. You deal with it.

Don't turn it into a drama in order to curry sympathy. You won't get any.

You are either worrying or annoying the delegates not to mention those whom you are blaming.

There are no Purple Hearts (or Iron Crosses) for trouble shooting courses.

Save your war stories for evenings out with fellow trainers.

Spare the delegates.

See you soon
