Heckling Election Style

election 2015Heckling Election style is a challenge faced by most politicians. How they manage these situations is a learning opportunity for us, since there is often a heckler in meetings..

In this week’s Superstar Communicator iTunes podcast I share lots of tips for managing these situations.

My main tips are:

  • Try to ignore the heckling
  • Try to come up with a good retort or put down
  • Don’t get wound up by interruptions
  • Repeat what you are saying so it is heard
  • Don’t show stress in your body language or voice

I remember heckling a very bad ‘comedian’ at a Comedy Club. The ‘comedian’ who thought the joke was saying the F word lots of times, couldn’t manage us, and the security staff threatened us to stop us heckling. Not a tip I would recommend!

Best wishes
