Consultants and coaches never really choose the audience in front of which they will present.
It is impossible to go inside the mind of each and every individual in the room and determine their motivations, needs, desires and wants.
For the professional consultant or coach—at a certain point—you’re always kind of just winging it.
In fact, the smaller the room, the more intimate the setting, the more winging it looks like a lack of preparation, concentration and expertise.
Which, of course, has the effect of reducing trust and increasing the likelihood that the audience will turn on you.
Don’t worry about the audience that was chosen for you. Worry more about developing the tools to present effectively no matter who—or how many—show up to see you present.
