Presentation Skills: Climate
Uncomfortable people will not listen to you. The unwritten rule is that meeting rooms are always too hot or too cold so you'll have to do your best. When setting air conditioning levels, the room should be cooler than you think it should be. The body heat of the audience will bring the room to the comfort level. Make sure it does, and be ready to make adjustments as you go.
If you can't get the right temperature, make sure you acknowledge the audience's
discomfort and encourage them to make the best of it. Your care for them will automatically make things a little better.
