Try to practice a soothing monotone and see if you can put all three to sleep. I hope your presentation is scheduled right after lunch. If you can succeed, you can leave and get some work done . . . or screw around on the Internet!

That's miserable. I've been there, and I know. The best thing to do, even though it's hard, is to go ahead and give it all you've got, making the best presentation you can, in spite of the empty room. That's not just a piece of pollyannaish buck-up advice; it will be a useful training experience, toughening you up for future situations where you have to perform under difficult conditions.

When this happens to me (and it happens to everyone) I pull them into a circle and do a casual walkthru of the content. Only a cunt would do a formal preso for 3 people.

Er? If the person giving a conference chooses a certain method, it doesn't make it a cunt. That's retarded. I liked the technique you mentioned, but you made it look like trash with the comment that followed it. :/

You'd get extra credit if all of the attendees are women. . . and it turned out that one or more of them had something to compare. You'd practically be Svengali!

If she pulls it off well, you never know, the three people might be just the ones to say 'you missed a great presentation, damn it was good and I thought I would bore myself to sleep' and that might just make more people come in the future!
