How to give Great Answers To Tough Questions
by International Communications-Boosting Speaker: Michael Dodd

Do you sometimes find yourself put “on the spot” by tough questions where you struggle to provide a quick, effective and impressive reply?

Nightmare questions can come from customers, prospects, journalists, financiers, officials, members of the public and members of your own team.

But wherever they’re from, knowing how to give great answers can boost your standing – and your organisation’s image and success.

GIVE GREAT ANSWERS TO TOUGH QUESTIONS equips you with the golden formulae to verbally handle all kinds of situations in the workplace and to get across the right message.

The session will:

  • Give you a justified confidence boost
  • Enable you to become more authoritative and persuasive
  • Improve your presentation skills
  • Enhance how others see you
  • Equip you with the “golden formulae” for dealing effectively with challenging questions, nasty questions and tricky questions
  • Empower you to perform more effectively and impressively under pressure
  • Shift your mindset to the point that you see tough questions as great opportunities to convey the right message

  Ask a question



During the session you’ll be given the golden formulae for answering tough workplace questions.

You’ll discover how to identify the best content, how to best structure your answers and how to enhance your delivery style as you give your replies.

You’ll know what traps to avoid so that when it comes to doing it for real you can give answers based on your learning and your enlightened preparation

As a result you’ll justifiably feel more confident.

The techniques you’ll learn will be particularly useful when preparing to answer questions involving information which you may suspect will not be universally popular but which you know is the right thing to do.

This can include situations such being questioned about redundancies, relocations and redeployments.

Whatever verbal challenges you face, you will leave the session feeling far better equipped to deal with whatever your questioners throw at you.
