Do you understand me?

Fellow speaker,

Professional speaker Nate Dunlop recommends identifying metaphors your audience will understand by asking these questions:
  • Who is your audience? do a deep survey of your audience so you know what their common knowledge is
  • What do they know about your topic? - determine the level of your audience's understanding about your topic - if they already understand what you are saying, there is no need to use a metaphor to describe it
