Tips for Giving Oral Presentations to Specific Groups

All oral presentations, whether to be given to large or to small groups, require that the speaker attend to the concerns of technical and rhetorical problem solving: the additional considerations of research, discrimination, planning, and practice; the organization of an effective text; and the mechanics of public speaking. In addition, other specific elements come into play depending on the type of group that the speaker is addressing. Following are discussions of factors to consider when giving oral presentations to three types of groups—committees, civic or special interest groups, and boards of directors.

Committees

The purpose that speakers have for speaking at committee meetings depends on their positions with regard to the committee: they can be guests, presenting information that the committee has requested or that they themselves asked to present; they can be committee members, reporting on specific assignments that they have received from the committee; or they can be chairs of committees, who are responsible for managing the flow of information that committees generate and for reporting on what has happened as a result of committee actions.
