Professional and public speakers before delivering their presentations
to any group, need to ask many questions of the program chair so that
their material is relevant to that audience. Here are a few to consider:

• Who will be attending this program? (sexual mix, how many,age range, work titles)
• What are the goals and objectives of this meeting/program?
• What results do you expect from me?
• Will this audience respond to my interactive exercises?
• How much content, how much entertainment?
• Very important – are you speaking at a meal event? This is challenging
for a speaker – I advise you not to speak over a meal because it is
difficult to get and maintain the attention of a group.

The Coach sez . . . those speakers who ask many questions prior to an
engagement are more successful at the platform.
