Public Speakers: Why You Should Focus on the Audience

You can always say a good public speaker. You can tell when they feel comfortable around people. When they like people. When they like to talk to people. It’s obvious.

They are the speakers who mingle with the audience before the speech. Talking and chatting. Meet people and ask who they are and what they are about.

It’s all a case of being audience-centric.

But why is it so important for a speaker to be focused on the audience? Why should they spend so much time getting to know and understand their audience before getting up to speak? After all, the audience is there to listen, right? Is it the speaker who leads the process and does all the work?

Well not really. In this article, I’m going to share four reasons why you should focus on your audience if you want to be a good public speaker.

1. People judge content by its relevance to themselves.. When you stand up to talk to people, they are willing to listen because they think they can learn something. That’s why they appear in the first place. But that also means they don’t have enough information to judge your content. If they had enough information, they wouldn’t need to be there. But they need to judge its content. To do that, they actually judge based on their relevance to themselves. Therefore, you need to understand who they are and what their interests are in order to be relevant to them.

two. People judge your speaking skills by your ability to convince them that you care.. People judge your speech intellectually by the three qualities you can control: content, organization, and presentation. But buried in the delivery is an emotional component. Do you worry about them? A smug speaker who doesn’t care will always be judged harshly. But a person who really cares, and shows the audience that they care, will always be supported. They will support you and forgive any mistakes you may make.

3. The extreme reactions of the audience flow from his understanding of the audience.. Has he ever been interrupted by someone in the audience? Have you ever had a standing ovation? Both extremes are directly related to how well you understand your audience. Get it right and those who interrupt will find themselves isolated. Your attempt to stand out will backfire. Do it really well and you’ll make friends in the audience. And the public will show their appreciation.

Four. Your confidence will be affected by your approach. Extreme reactions, positive or negative, may not be as common. But the less extreme reactions – applause, for example, are. And every time you succeed, your confidence will improve. Every time you fail, your confidence will be lower. Doesn’t it make sense to understand the judges who have so much control over your confidence?
