How to be smart in meetings

When I attend meetings and conferences, one of the best thing that I observe that when someone ask a question and I respond, “You’ve asked a very intelligent question.” I’d find a glow in the eyes of person and his involvement in the discussion gets recharged.

The best way to appear smart in any meeting is, you prepare beforehand going for the meeting.  Do a Venn Diagram of things you know and don’t know and thereafter having your attention fixed on the topic either ask an intelligent question or support the answer if you find the explanation appropriate.

This shall help you gain attention, recognition and appreciation instantly.

Share if you have a better way to appear smart through any another way.
