Business executives have fallen asleep or felt sleepy during dull presentations, reveals a survey of business managers.
The most difficult types of presentations to stay awake through were individual speeches, followed by training sessions, and then general meetings.
Webcasts were said to be the easiest type of conference to stay alert though with only 11 percent of respondents saying they were difficult to sit through, the company reported.
Survey participants said that the most important elements for a successful presentation were an 'animated and enthusiastic' speaker (at 51 percent), followed by an 'interesting and interactive' presentation (at 36 percent of the votes). It helped if the presenter was 'good looking,' 3 percent of respondents said.
