“Someone’s sleeping in my presentation”

Do you remember the story of Goldilocks?

Baby Bear discovered that someone was sleeping in his bed; “Someone’s sleeping in my bed, and she’s still there.”

Could you be putting your audience to sleep in your presentation?

You start off with a bang, but somewhere in the middle you start to see the signals:

  • *People have a glazed look on their face
  • *Something, anything is more interesting to your audience members
  • *People are yawning
  • *Your audience is fidgeting
  • *Participants are laid back with their eyes closed

Oh no, someone’s sleeping in your presentation! What do you do?

Don’t panic, next week we’ll have a look at how to get back on track and re-connect with your audience.

    Nice blog. You could also add that people start to flick and punch their Blackberrys and mobiles under the table!
