VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
Giving a presentation in English can be challenging - Part 1
1. Remember Your Audience
The first rule when speaking in public is to remember your audience.
Naturally, your "audience" is defined as those who are expected to see and hear whatever it is that you have to say or show them.
For example, if your audience consists of nothing but Czechs instead of Americans, you may wish to customize your presentation a bit to account for this fact.
If your audience consists of nothing but women versus a group of "macho" military guys, it is expected that you might use different delivery styles in order to tailor your message to these specific and distinctively different kinds of groups.
This same rule also and especially applies to talks you might give either at schools or especially where children of all ages are present.
2. Find the Common Ground
In this example, if you find yourself speaking before an audience that has either a mixture of different cultures or age groups, in order to reach as many people as possible, you will have to find common ground.
Try to avoid remarks or approaches which might "play" well to certain segments of your listening audience, because it could also alienate others who are either not interested, or may not understand what you are saying, because they cannot relate to it.
