How to talk to a diverse audience?

πŸ‘‰ Tip 1: Speak slowly and clearly. Use simple English.

πŸ‘‰ Tip 2: Don’t assume everyone has the same lifestyle: they can live in a totally different time zone, eat totally different types of food, and enjoy different things.

πŸ‘‰ Tip 3: Provide context always. Tell people something they know to connect with them then tell them something they don’t know. For example, not everyone knows the King’s Cross station in London so we can introduce this as the station where Platform 9 ΒΎΒ from Harry Potter was filmed.

πŸ‘‰ Tip 4: Constantly check in with people. Ask more open questions such as what does this mean for you to collect honest and diverse perspectives on one topic.
