How to: put your audience offside

Assume they're going to be rude and inattentive, and immediately get defensive and try to counteract it. 

Try saying something like, "I respect your experience and knowledge, and all I ask is for you all to do the same for me please. Thank you."

It should take a good ten minutes before they look at you with anything but resentment.

Mission accomplished!
