Example text

As members of an audience, we may not even be particularly interested in the topic to begin with. Worse still, and unlike in conversation where we can do something about our lack of interest by changing the subject, we have no control over how the subject of a presentation or speech will be developed. It’s the speaker who has sole responsibility both for selecting the material and organising it into an orderly sequence. Nor do we have much idea about exactly what’s going to be included, or how the subject matter is going to be divided up – until or unless the speaker gives us advance notice of what’s to come, and the order in which the points will be covered.

You might, for example, have seen signs of puzzlement or boredom emanating from the audience, in which case you may decide to add some previously unplanned words of clarification, an illustrative example, or perhaps a summary of the argument so far. On the face of it, a short pause of a second or so might not seem nearly long enough to take stock, let alone to change course if that appears to be necessary. But our years of experience as conversationalists have already made us old hands when it comes to interpreting and producing talk in the split seconds that separate the turns in everyday conversation.

And if we’re confused about where things have got to in relation to where they were supposed to be going, our ability to understand and keep on paying attention will go into a progressive decline. The problems of understanding faced by audiences and the difficulty of doing something about them are therefore very different from the way they arise and are dealt with in conversation. This means that the speaker’s main challenge is to make sure that the subject matter is presented in a way that the audience can follow.
