YOU CANNOT ‘HOODWINK’ AUDIENCES
Some speakers and presenters may feel they can presented with minimal preparation and a ‘winging it’ attitude and that will not be noticed. How wrong they are! Empty rhetoric and hollow speech is fairly quickly recognised. less-thank-polite audiences will let presenters know about content paucity while they are speaking.
In more academic and possibly refined circles, the audible response may not come. However, audience members will make mental notes about the speech and the presenter may be presenting to that particular group for the last time.
Careful preparation is ever so important. Neglect is perilous.
