1. Audience is important.  Their limits, assumptions, interests.  Know their limits of every sort, of the extent of what they want to hear about, their education, and so forth.  Time limits.  Be frank.  More precious than any other generation before.  Limited attention spans.  You need to reckon with these things and deal with them in advance.  “Counsel, you’ve got x minutes to finish your statements.”  Good speakers measure their time.  Think deep and think hard.  What is the speaker’s purpose?
