Ask the Expert: How do I tactfully stop a rambling speaker?

If you find yourself cringing at your watch when a speaker starts exceeding their allotted time – it can be painful!

Prepare your speaker ahead of time by identifying yourself or someone on your team as being the time keeper. Position the time keeper in a strategic place in the audience or somewhere within eye shot of the presenter. Let the speaker know the ‘sign’ for ‘wrap it up’, ‘over-time’ or ‘Stop Now!’.

Most likely your speaker will thank you for helping them respect the program timeline you’ve communicated to your audience!
