Eric Gilboord is a firm believer in understanding your audience. When you understand the wants, needs, and expectations of your audience, you can tailor your presentation so that it not only covers the agreed upon points but adds value by making those points relevant to that particular audience. In this episode, Gilboord talks about how to connect with and engage an audience, among other topics.

Eric Gilboord’s Big Tip: “Being the speaker and dealing with an audience is no different than being a plumber or an electrician or a painter. Someone hires you to do something. You clarify. If somebody hired you to paint their living room and you came in and painted the bedroom, how well do you think that would go over?”
