  This Week's Tip: Repeat the Question   When an audience member asks a question during a presentation, be sure to repeat that question. There are several reasons to do this: To make sure everyone hears it To confirm the question To summarize the question To make it easier to answer   When you do this, your session is more efficient since the audience won't have to ask you to repeat a question they didn't hear. Plus, people will feel acknowledged.   Post Tip Discussion: What I saw on my Cruise   During a week long vacation I saw 5 things that can help public speakers: Rituals Repetitive framework Own the stage Power of the stage Alternative timers   Exploring these areas can help you become an even stronger speaker.   Relevant Websites:   JoCo Cruise Pat Rothfuss Paul and Storm Mary Robinette Kowal Wil Wheaton Molly Lewis Cards Against Humanity   Call To Action   Check out the JoCo Cruise website if a week at sea doing nerdy things appeals to you Leave a comment about what you've seen other presenters do while you were on vacation If you enjoy 2 Minute Talk Tips, leave a review in the iTunes store If you don't already, please subscribe to 2 Minute Talk Tips in your favorite podcast app Repeat the questions in your next session Don't get best...get better
