Ignoring technical difficulties

. 1 min read

When you’re on stage, expect things to fail. The microphone will disconnect itself. The WiFi will stop working. The computer will start a system update at exactly the wrong moment.

If the microphone disconnects, start shouting.
If the WiFi doesn't work, explain what your results would have shown without blinking.
If the computer suddenly shuts off, keep presenting like nothing happened.

Ignore technical issues. Don’t stop your presentation.
