SIXTEEN YEARS OF SCHOOLING does not prepare us to handle difficult questions. From the ages of five or six, we are taught that there are only three ways to handle a difficult question – you either ‘know’, you ‘don’t know’, or you ‘have a guess’. But there’s one more way to handle a difficult question – the only problem is that it is considered ‘cheating’.
So says Morry Morgan, co-founder of ClarkMorgan and senior presentation skills trainer. Morry has taught business leaders from a host of countries, including Australia, China, Britain, Italy, and Germany, on how to present more confidently, and just as importantly, answer difficult questions confidently.
