10 things you should never say during presentations

Mr. Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten shared in his blog about the 10 things you should never say during presentations, which I found is very inspiring.

Here are the 10 no-no, and I believe most of us had said some or all of such sentences in our presentations before. Watch out!

  • I’m very jet-lagged / tired / hungover
  • I’ll get back to that later
  • Can you hear me? Yes you can!
  • I can’t see you because the lights are too bright
  • Can you read this?
  • Let me read this out loud for you
  • Shut off your phone / laptop / tablet
  • No need to write anything down or take photos, the presentation will be online later
  • Let me answer that question right away
  • I’ll keep it short
Why Boris thinks that those sentence shouldn't be said during presentation? Click here to read the source article in his blog to find out more.
