Forgetting a line or slipping up in a presentation isn’t the end of the world. As a matter of fact, it can be an opportunity to inject spontaneity and even some humor into your talk. When you’re working from prepared remarks, your ad libs will be better. And by keeping your response light hearted, you’ll endear yourself to your audiences.
Stay calm. Don’t panic. Respond (or not) and just pick up where you left off. Remember this: If you don’t make a big deal out of it, no one else will either.
