  When Your Audience Isn’t

        By Janis Robinson

    Presenter: Samir Chahid
• What is Technology?
• Explaining the Six Tips for talking
• Summary
             What is Technology?
• Technology is “the branch of knowledge that deals with the
  creation and use of technical means and their interrelation
  with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such
  subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and
  pure science.” (dictionary. COM)
• Technology is everywhere, and it is always updated, but it is
  not necessarily for everybody to be aware of how to deal
  with it.
• Technology can be used to create an effective
  communication and connection between the speaker and
  the listener.
       1. Determine the audience’s
    technology level before you speak
• The speaker needs to meet with few audiences before the
  presentation just to see what is their levels of understanding
  the new technology.
• He has to know what his audience want to learn from his
  experience. Do they want to learn a lot to help them in their job
  or just a little?
• He must be clear, more specific, and go to the point. His
  presentation must be interesting and short as possible, in order
  for the audience to follow it and not get tired or bored.
• He has to make sure what is the interests of his audiences to
  make sure he won’t miss anything in the presentation.
• By meeting with few participants, the speaker will know what his
  audience will do with the info after the session ends.
     2.Put your audience at ease
•   There are two kind of audiences;
     −    Audience who join and attend the presentation, because they are interested and have a desire
         to achieve their goals and get more experience in their jobs.
     −   Audiences who attend the presentation just because their bosses asked them to attend it, and
         may be their positions depend on their attendance; so they might seemed afraid or confused:
     −   Suggestions: [relax the insecure participants]
           • Use friendly atmosphere
           • Humor / Making fun of anything but not the audience
           • Try to spot anyone who is truly afraid
           • Ask audience questions and make them participate
     −   If possible, and if the speaker has the opportunity to meet with the uncomfortable people
         before the presentation and ask them privately why they are afraid, it will be better.
      3.Don’t be a techno-snob
• The speaker has to avoid using sentences such as “It’s obvious,”
  “ It’s common knowledge”, or “As you all know” while his giving
  his presentation.
• These sentences make the audience get confused and hard to
  follow the presenter, because they think they are the only
  people who don’t know what the speaker is talking about.
• The speaker was asked to speak because he is the expert and has
  a lot of experience, but at the same time he has to know that his
  rule is to pass his experience to others.
• While explaining the materials, he has to explain step by step
  slowly and make sure that everybody is following, and try do
  not make anyone be embarrassed because they are not familiar
  with the materials.
 4.Avoid using jargon or acronyms
• First of all, the speaker has to take the audience in
  consideration; in other word, the presenter has to
  use a sample words that can be clearly and fully
  understood by the audience.
• In order to create a good connection between
  presenter and his audience, he has to use simple
  context, sample words (not technical or key words).
• While talking about technology, he has to use simple
  words or if he does use complex words he has to make
  sure that he is ready to explain more and has to
  have an answer for questions.
        5.Use verbal illustrations
• The presenter has to spark his audiences by using their
  languages and by using some key words that will capture
  his audience’ attention(pictures, ask questions, and true
• He has to choose general key words that make sense to
  his audiences rather than using technical words, so they
  won’t get confused.
6.Whenever possible show, don’t tell
• The speaker may use a visual tools such
  as videos, pictures, or charts, etc that
  support his ideas.
• Sometimes, visuals give better
  explanation to the audiences and get
  directly to the main point than just
  listen to a speaker.
• Finally, I would say that the six tips for talking
  technical described earlier can help the presenter to
  be prepared and make plans of what he will say in his
  presentation in order to be understood and followed
  by his audience. Moreover, It will help him make his
  presentation more effective.
• Technology is a part of our daily life and everyone
  needs to be aware of it.
• Technology can be used to create communication and
  connection between the speaker and the listener.
