An Important Part of Public Speaking Is to Know Your Audience

Here are some ways to get to know your audience:
For small groups – allow time in the beginning of your presentation for everyone to do a brief intro. Who they are, why they are there, etc.

If your audience is to big for everyone to introduce themselves, then call on a few to share who they are and why they are there.

If your group is too large to call on a few, ask questions to the entire audience such as: “raise your hand if you are a manger of more than 5 people, raise your hand if you are here to learn how to properly communicate with your staff, raise your hand if you are here to learn how to communicate effectively with your clients, etc.”
