Podcast #4 – Understand Audience


  1. says

    Thanks, Paul and Fred, for the comments. Paul — when are you coming to the US next? And Fred, the implication in your comment is an important one — for professional speakers and anyone who gives the same (or similar) speech over and over again, customization is key!

    Good information, Nick.
    Every audience is not the same. Content for one may not work for another.
    Age, ethnicity, education, and a variety of other things can affect the need to customize that “standard” speech.
    Thanks for the Post!
