Communicate Effectively

How to Communicate Effectively

When giving an oral presentation, knowing the audience is of prime importance. A woman working for a major non-profit health organization once gave a speech on heart attacks and strokes before a group of Rotarians who, unknown to her, included many doctors and cardiologists. Everything she knew about how to communicate effectively with an audience was diminished because she didn't know her audience. Had she taken the time to ask about the professional make-up of her audience when she accepted the invitation to speak, she could have altered her message to this group who had more knowledge of the subject than did she. 

When you are preparing for a speech, some basic rules should be followed.

There are many sites, listed below, that have information on effectively communicating with an audience.
