Refocusing Speaker Also Needed

Workshop at Empoder. 45 minutes in. The speaker still has quite a bit to go through in her presentation about legal rights to do with immigration and a client rises his hand and starts going into a very detailed and specific question. The kind that has an answer that would really only be relevant to him. I speak up after the question goes into minute 3 of explanation and say: "I'm so sorry to interrupt but we have a lot to cover and I'm sure the speaker could answer individual questions later." Speaker speaks up and says "No, it's OK" and nods for guest to continue. Aaaaah, I'm trying to help you here speaker! And the rest of us who want to get all the information you were planning to share with us before allotted time is up...
