Points of information

Points of Information

  • A short (15 second maximum) interjection from a speaker on the opposite bench

  • The person speaking is expected to respond directly to the POI if possible

  • The person speaking always has the right to decline a POI

  • Should accept at least 1 – but too many will get in the way of your speech
