    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The most effective mindset for a salesperson coming into a presentation with a customer is not necessarily "Locked and Loaded." This phrase implies being prepared and ready to aggressively push a sale, which may not always be the best approach. Instead, a more effective mindset might be one of empathy, active listening, and a genuine desire to understand and meet the customer's needs.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because it suggests that one of the best ways to open a presentation is by framing your comments with a statement about specializing in three areas. However, there is no evidence or explanation provided to support this claim, and it may not be applicable or effective for all presentations. Therefore, the statement cannot be considered true.

    During a 30-minute presentation a customer has brought up an important, but not urgent question. If you provide the detailed answer it deserves, you will easily run out of time. You should:

    • A.

      Send it to the parking lot.

    • B.

      Take the time to provide a complete answer.

    • C.

      Touch on it, but acknowledge the time factor.

    • D.

      Acknowledge the question, but keep presenting.

    Correct Answer
    C. Touch on it, but acknowledge the time factor.
    Explanation
    In this situation, the customer has asked an important question, but it is not urgent and providing a detailed answer will exceed the time limit of the presentation. Therefore, the best approach would be to touch on the question briefly, giving a basic answer or acknowledging its importance, but also mentioning the time constraint. This way, the presenter can acknowledge the question without derailing the presentation or running out of time.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Early on in the presentation, the customer expresses a concern. Because you know that in a few sections from now, this concern will be addressed, you ask them to stay with you while you continue. This is an example of:

    • A.

      Sticking to the script

    • B.

      Managing your time

    • C.

      Ready to rock

    • D.

      Good planning and pacing 

    Correct Answer
    A. Sticking to the script
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sticking to the script" because the presenter acknowledges the customer's concern but asks them to stay with them while they continue, indicating that they will address the concern later on. This suggests that the presenter is following a predetermined plan or script for the presentation, which includes addressing concerns at specific sections.
