Think of your audience as equals

If you think about people in your audience as being better than you or less valuable than you, you won’t do your best. Focus on why you’re there and why they need the information regardless of their position in the company, there ability to control your life, or their social standing. If you have something of value to share with them, something that will enhance their job or their life, focus on that. If you don’t have something of value to them, then change what you’re going to say so that it does have value — or don’t talk to them. Knowing that what you’re saying is something they can use will help ensure you do your best.
