The Unexpected Humor

When your audience laughs when it is unexpected, let it go. The more they laugh the more energy there will be in the room and the more upbeat your presentation will appear.

What to do when your audience laughs...
Shut up. Let them laugh. It’s the best thing that can happen in your presentation. If you talk over their laughter, they will not hear what you say. If you cut their laughter short, you are taking away impact from your presentation. So let them laugh, laugh, laugh.
