What to Do When They Cut Your Time

When you learn at the last moment that the allotted time for your presentation has been cut, here are some suggestions of what to do:

-Cut chunks of the presentation out, or cut out an entire section. Don’t take a little from each section.

-Put even more emphasis on your open and close, which may now constitute the bulk of the pitch.

-Stay focused to a single point and make sure that everything you say supports that point.

-Don’t complain at the presentation that your time was cut.

-Finally, and most importantly, don’t rush through the presentation. You worked hard to prepare.  Present at a normal pace with confidence.

Take your time and make a great presentation.
