Where real work begins

4. WORK UP THE AUDIENCE BEFORE YOU START WORKING ON YOUR PIECE
Everybody is feeling out everybody. You may be nervous about your audience but they are also apprehensive about you. It is a big deal to lower down their apprehensions and make them comfortable.
I introduce myself first to the audience and engage them in little conversations. I give them my business cards. Look them in the eye and put on my best wardrobe for the day and that is my smile. Listen to them speak and sincerely be interested in them.
Some speakers act like prima donnas and this boomerangs on them. Nothing beats being friendly and starting some conversation with some of the audience especially with those who show up early.
