Communication occurs
when the message "received" is the same
as the message "sent".

 

speaker Strategies For Success
Speakers must bear the primary responsibility for the accuracy of the message received by the audience in their presentations. A variety of technical speaker strategies may be employed to bypass the presentation roadblocks and deal constructively with the listening factors.
 These strategies include:
  • Stating the presentation topic and purpose early
  • Organizing the content clearly and letting the audience know the organizational scheme
  • Presenting and supporting a few key concepts using short, easily remembered sound bites
  • Keeping details to a minimum and relating them to the specific audience
  • Using a variety of delivery techniques
  • Engaging a number of listener senses in the "receiving" activity
  • Involving the listeners and using their examples

Effective technical speakers realize that focusing on the needs, limitations, and communication issues of the audience sharpens the message delivery and facilitates message reception. By planning, organizing, and delivering listener-based presentations, effective speakers will enhance their overall communicative effectiveness.

Now we understand why business communication differs from regular communication and how audience issues affect reception of our message.
