Difficult Audiences: The Rambler

Public speakers and trainers need to be able to manage difficult audiences. One difficult audience member is the rambler or storyteller. You'll recognize this personality because they love to talk.

This can cause the presentation to go off track and for the speaker to lose control. Watch this brief video to learn how to handle the rambler.
