Be a great audience

Not a great audience

You definitely want to have great audiences, so you need to make sure you are a great audience member yourself. And you are an audience whenever Milly, Jessica, or I are talking to you and especially when we have guests presenting to you, which will happen often in your first week on the job. If someone is presenting to you, give them your attention and your respect, even if they’re not particularly effective presenters. Your engagement – eye contact, nodding (NOT nodding off!), smiling, asking questions – can make a dull topic interesting and could make the presenter more effective.

You reap what you sow, so be the kind of audience member you expect to have this summer.
