Handling questions 問與答

為了加強雙向溝通,不妨在簡報過程中或結束後開放觀眾提問,讓他們更能釐清你所說的內容。

【範例】

▲There will be a Q&A session after the presentation.我們在簡報結束後會開放提問。

▲Please feel free to interrupt me if you have any questions.如果你有任何問題都歡迎馬上提出。

▲That brings me to the end of my presentation.Thank you for your attention. I’d be glad to answer any questions you might have.我的簡報就到這邊,謝謝你的耐心聆聽。如果對今天簡報有任何問題,都歡迎現在提出。

重述一次問題是個很好的方式,既可以幫你再次確認你答題的方向沒錯,也可以給自己一些思考緩衝時間。除此之外,還能讓其他聽眾知道問題是什麼。

▲Thank you. So you would like further clarication on our strategy?謝謝!所以你想要我對於我們的策略更清楚的說明對嗎?

▲That’s an interesting question. How are we going to get voluntary redundancy?這是個有趣的問題,是關於我們如何實施提早退休計畫的,對嗎?

當你回答完問題後,請確保提問者有得到他想要的答案。

▲Does this answer your question?我有回答到你的問題嗎?

▲Do you follow what I am saying?你了解我想說的嗎?

▲I hope this was what you wanted to hear!希望這就是你想知道的答案!

▲I hope this explains the situation for you.希望這說明了你的問題。

如果你不知道問題的答案,那就直說吧!承認你不知道,總比回答錯誤的答案還好。你的回答方式可以像這樣:

▲That’s an interesting question. I don’t actually know off the top of my head, but I’ll try to get back to you later with an answer.這是個有趣的問題,我一時想不起來該怎麼說,讓我想想再回答你。

▲I’m afraid I’m unable to answer that at the moment.Perhaps I can get back to you later.恐怕我現在還沒辦法給你答案,我或許稍後可以給你答案。

▲Good question. I really don’t know! What do you think? 好問題!我還真的不知道,你覺得呢?

▲That’s a very good question. However, we don’t have any figures on that, so I can’t give you an accurate answer.這是個好問題。但我現在其實沒有確切數據可以佐證,所以沒辦法給你一個精確的答案。

▲Unfortunately, I’m not the best person to answer that. 其實,這個問題不該由我來回答。

如果聽眾不了解你的意思

如果你的聽眾不了解你的意思,或許你可以試著換句話說,讓他們用另一個角度去理解。

【範例】

▲Let me just say that in another way.讓我換種說法。

▲Perhaps I can rephrase that.也許我可以換一種說法。

▲Put another way, this means...換句話說,這意味著……

▲What I mean to say is...我的意思是說……



演講的靈魂,就在轉折詞裡

當你在演講時,是否曾遇過這樣的狀況:

▲奇怪,我的想法無法用句子連接在一起!

▲咦,我的想法怎麼連貫不起來?

▲完蛋了,我沒有邏輯……

其實,答案就在轉折詞中!轉折詞有如潤滑劑,可以連接出句子和段落間的起承轉合,讓簡報產生連貫性,進而更為流暢,幫助聽眾在第一時間內抓到重點。最好根據上下

句之間的邏輯關係,找出恰當的轉折詞,但我們往往就是and、but 幾個字換來換去,不妨學學以下超好用轉折詞,讓你的簡報充滿靈魂。

除了用and,還可以用什麼來講相同的想法呢?
