In elementary school, most of us asked questions which were for purely informational purposes. A raise of the hand usually got the attention of the teacher and the question was treated matter-of-factly. In training however, questions from the audience are rarely asked and when they are, they don’t get the attention they deserve. However, these questions, along with other indicators, can give a presenter an abundance of information to analyze their audience. It is crucial that presenters take these questions and other indicators seriously to avoid having their presentations become one-sided.


Many presenters, especially relative novices, find their situation unknown and frightening. Although they have rehearsed their presentation and their notes are organized, as they are about to step up to the podium they are so overcome by nervousness that it affects their performance. In short, they are suffering from "stage fright". Most presenters experience some form of stage fright when facing a live audience for the first time. Any presenters who doesn’t is in a very small minority among professionals and amateurs alike. Few trainers, even those who deal with audiences daily, ever completely overcome it..


Many experienced presenters feel that there is something lacking in their rehearsals, even after mentally reviewing their notes and presentation aids. They’ll know their style and method of delivery. They’ll already have experience with their subject, and have pre-established methods of getting points across. Many of their facts and supporting material will already be committed to memory. Still, experience indicates that there must be a way to be better prepared to deliver a presentation. At this point, an auditory rehearsal can have great value. Practice and polishing specific effects, smoothing out the use of visuals, or trying new ideas out on someone may be of additional benefit.
