Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 3 – Episode 54 – Presentation Skill – Managing Questions

That’s right! I hope you guys are excited about this new installment. Since I’ve given so many presentations, and having a massive interview come up, I want to start delivering different things and implementing a little personal development into these lessons that will help you. Learning how to manage questions makes ALL the difference in the world. So without further ado, let’s get into this!

When you’re giving any kind of presentation or talk, you may want to leave some time for questions at the end. If you’re constantly interrupted, it will disrupt your flow-state, presentation, and ultimately irritate you. So, here are some different ways of dealing with that.

Stating you will take questions.

Telling your audience, at the beginning, when you will take questions is important.

Please hold all questions until the end.

I’ll be happy to answer any questions later.

Taking questions.

This is the part when you tell the audience that questions are now to be taken.

I’d be happy now to take a few questions.

Let’s open it up and see if you have any questions.

You don’t have to answer every question. If you answered it already, refer quickly to what you said. If you can’t answer a question, it’s best to be honest about it and say so.


Referring back to a previous point.

I believe I answered that question previously.

I think I’ve already answer that.

Like I said before,……..

Stating you don’t know the answer.

I’m afraid I don’t know.

I’m sorry, but I don’t have the answer to that.
