3. Ensure appropriate attentiveness and participation at the meeting by means of an effective preparation of the presentation and the method that it will be presented. Provide for effective strategies to catch and maintain audience attention and participation. Accommodate questions, inquiries and feedbacks but there is a need to control them for time limit's sake. 4. Always consider the audience characteristics and diversity. Make sure that the speaker knows the kind of audience that will be participating and try to put himself/herself in their shoes, and ask the following questions: What would their interests be? What kind of reactions will they have about certain matters presented?

For example, women are more often characterized as caring and emotional whereas men have different characteristics, such as power and confidence. From this, what are the perceptions then of both sexes? Sometimes, women are looked at as too emotional or letting their feelings go too far in certain relationships. Men, on the other hand, are sometimes looked at as too dominant and too confident on themselves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
