What the topic says. Not just where you are presenting, but other people’s meetings that you happen to be listening in on, like colleagues.
This question is more about large meetings, or at least where there are more than just 2 people.
Senior management meaning chief actuaries/ heads of large groups.
Is it more adversarial or collaborative in tone?
Do they find and mention points of agreement? And ask for more detail regarding the points of the presentation?
Delve into and ask about a tiny detail within the scope but not part of the points of the presentation?
Do they seem focused on finding small areas to disagree with in the presentation? Ask and expect answers for items outside the scope?
How often do they compliment the presenter on something? (And how many times on average during the meeting)
How often do they criticize (and how many times on average)?
Do they ever straight out insult the presenter (as in, a criticism that is about the person instead of the work)? And how?
