Cruise Ship Lecturers Need to Know and Trust Their Audience

Trust Your Audience

Trust Your Audience

Professional speakers need to know their audience.

Cruise ship lecturers need to know their audience as well.

Both need to trust their audiences. By this I mean the speaker, lecturer needs to trust that his/her audience will respond the way they have in the past. Indeed things change. People change as well.

But audiences make connections with the speaker / lecturer. It happens at different times for different groups and for different reasons. But a connection happens … or should happen and the guy or girl up front needs to be ready

There may be that experience from time to time of “Is anybody out there listening to me?” Or, “Wow, tough crowd.” when nobody laughs at a funny line that always worked in the past.

The speaker needs to make adjustments as necessary. This is all part of the preparation process.

But, when push comes to shove the lecturer needs to trust that s/he is getting through to the audience. And when worse comes to worst, try something else and believe that the audience will respond.

It pays to have different techniques to present material = different presentation tools, different wording, different illustrations, different methodologies … and all professional lecturers have these resources. Elsewise … they’d still be in the amateur category.
