Who's in the audience and why should I care?
SEPTEMBER 8, 2008
Another problem with not learning about your audience in advance is in presenting material that is too advanced or too simplistic. When I give presentations on public speaking, I find (through my advance research) that some of my groups don't have much fear of speaking. Speak to the attendees Maybe speaking to every attendee is a stretch, but you can always send a brief questionnaire to the organizer for distribution to the group (SurveyMonkey for this, too).
