It seems our fellow workshop participant thinks what she has to say is more important than the organised speaker’s material.
It’s a smallish group admittedly, but the rest of us are there principally to hear what the workshop leader has to offer. Some contributions from the floor are welcome, but not so many or so long that they dominate.
Unfortunately, our fellow participant doesn’t seem to realise she’s over-doing it. Not for the first time, one suspects.
Later it’s clear that the others present all have the same experience of the person. One says “I thought it was just me.” It wasn’t.
A danger for all of us…
So how do you judge when you’ve made the right amount of contribution—enough to be helpful but not so much as to get in the way?
Something about leaving others wanting more, perhaps?
You can tell that from their faces, if you look.
