You prepare your presentation, you practice it and all goes well. And then… What happens in the questions session afterwards? You can’t prepare good answers, right?

Think again!

Questions are made up not only of content, but intentions, elements of self-expression, even emotions. Understanding this, equips you to prepare for most situations. 

This one-day workshop will examine types of questions and the messages they embed. It will also explore the language that helps you to take control of your answers. In the second half of the day we will simulate real situations and practice Q&A sessions.
