“I try to read an audience when I get to a location, and figure out what’s their skill level? How much technology can I talk about or do I really have to simplify it to keep them engaged the whole time? … You’ve really got to get a good sense of who your audience is technologically-wise, education-wise … there’s a whole bunch of things. So reading that audience is really part of what makes this public speaking thing a learned skill. But it is also a little bit of a natural ability, too…”
