Wasn't quite my fault but was in a joint presentation with a partner of ours to a prospective client. The meeting was a bit redundant to one we had with the same group a week prior and we were covering essentially the same material for a DM present.

The partner shared their screen and their slack was up and the partner had a group chat that was shit talking the prospect, one of their colleagues and I both instantly un-muted and started shouting hey wrong screen wrong screen.

Don't know if the prospect was able to read, I can't imagine it was missed but we just pretended it didn't happen. The partner called us after and was profusely apologizing begging us not to kick them out.

To this day I don't think I've gotten so sweaty during a presi but we still ended up closing the business!

PSA: don't talk shit and share you screen or exit out of all messeging apps!

Patiently waiting for the "someone had porn on when they shared their screen" story. Happened to a colleague of mine's prospect. Even worse, it was a Monday morning. Imagine the week that poor dude had.

Besides it just not working in a room full of prospects and you try to dance and entertain while the SE shits his pants? Ps we got it to work after a rough couple minutes (20) and closed one of the 4 prospects in the room

The real part is they still let the 2.5 hour demo happen after that horrendous non start. My jokes were on point that day!! Shouldve had the other 3 though, but there were other reasons that collapsed besides this (thats what i tell myself at least)ย
