2-Minute Tip: Keep Tissues Handy
Sneezing in the middle of a presentation can be either mildly annoying or quite embarrassing. It all depends on whether or not you have tissues readily accessible during your talk.

Everything thing from a cold to allergies to hot lights to failing air conditioning can impact your need for tissues as you talk. Be prepared, and have them available.
