Always remain professional

Maintain your dignity. Many speakers tend to shed their professional demeanor at the conclusion of their formal presentation. Don't loosen a tie, lean on the podium, or relax your diction. As Davis (2005) notes, "Yeah" is not a good way to begin the answer to a question.

Never answer sarcastically or with anger. If you feel someone is asking a "loaded" question only for purposes of impressing others, remain courteous and patient. Even if a question or comment was not asked with dignity, you can dignify it by supplying a serious, professional reply.
