Just started at the firm and was on a team (just for the training period) where we had a to present to senior leaders within the firm. Despite aligning on speaking roles ahead of time, a male colleague consistently spoke up after every speaker (to add additional points) - the points were fine but felt a bit disrespectful to the speaker in my opinion.
