Research Your Audience Before The Speech

Find out about the type of audience that you are to speak in front of. In this way you can tailor make your speech to suit the listeners. Any topic can be spoken about in front of anyone, what is needed that it should be couched in words that the listener can understand and relate to.

For instance, if you are presenting a paper at a seminar there are bound to be learned academicians in the audience. So you should be using technical terms and precise information.

If however, you are faced with the prospect of speaking about the same topic in front of laymen you will need to replace technical terms with easy to understand terms and present your facts in terms that they can relate to.

First and foremost arm yourself with the knowledge that it is not just you but almost everyone is scared of speaking in public. Some show it and some do not.
