Does audience size matter?

Flo Akinbiyi - Does Audience Size Matter

What is the difference between speaking in front of 10, 1 000 or 10 000 people? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

The difference exists mainly in your head. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ

Of course, the size of the audience has an impact on the tools that you use, the microphone, the audio system, the lights, and the technology used - all of this changes as the size of the event or stage changes. โœ…

But at the end of the day, what many people tend to forget is that whether you're speaking to 1, 10, 1 000 or 10 000 people, you are speaking to people. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

You're speaking to human beings, and they all came to hear you speak. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ

That is the truth. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

So you should not see the audience as a hostile engagement, you should see them all as friends that come to listen to you, to experience your knowledge and wisdom, to hear your story. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ

Instead of putting the number on a pedestal, focus on connecting with every single person in the audience, one way or another. โœ…

The result will be you delivering a winning speech or talk.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ

Has the audience size ever freaked you out?
