The most critical factor in public communication is the audience. An audience is one or more people who come together to listen to the speaker. You should know your audience and learn things such as their general age, gender, education level, religion, language, culture, and group membership.

Knowing your audience is essential for developing your voice. Everything is tailored around this. Examine your audience and figure out the best way to reach them or build common ground between you and your audience members.

It is imperative in public speaking situations that the speaker talks to the audience while the audience members listen. Often, the audience is not involved in the discussion, other than listening, except there may be a query and reply period at the end of the presentation or speech.

Public communication is a common way of saying public speaking. Public speaking usually makes people scared even when they hear the term. However, it certainly doesn’t have to be if the person prepares the speech completely. To do this, the public speaker must take into account many things. The first things that a public speaker must do is to think about their audience. Knowledge of the audience will help dictate the writing for the speech and topics that need to be covered.

There are other crucial factors, but audience is the most important. If you don’t take this into consideration, you can’t progress to the next step in creating the speech. Writing a captivating speech with the audience in mind is important too.
