It is always best to communicate a clear set of groundrules
near the beginning of a presentation. For instance, if you do
not want questions until the end of your program, state that
up front and get agreement from the group. If comments from the
audience are allowed, ask that they be kept to a certain amount
of time (like 30 seconds or less). Getting everyone to agree to
your plan in the beginning puts enormous peer pressure on an
individual violating any of the rules.
