HBR: A 4-Step Plan to Make Your Q&A More Audience-Friendly

Here is an interesting article from the Harvard Business Review with a helpful framework for presentations. The title of the article is targeted at Q&A sessions but I found the content to have a wider application than that.

Despite how effective interviews can be in theory, however, they are often difficult to execute in practice. As a result, audience members are often left feeling disengaged and unsatisfied while guests struggle to inform and engage in a way that resonates.

A good Q&A invites the audience into the experience.  Two effective ways to do this are by (1) using inclusive language and (2) polling the audience.
