The most pronounced difference between speaking to large groups versus small groups or individuals is surprisingly fundamental. In a small group presentation or individual conversation there is an expectation of a back and forth exchange. It goes something like this; you speak and I listen and then I speak and you listen. It’s much like watching a tennis match. Contrarily, large group presentations require you to balance the weight of your thoughts on every word, while leaving context clues to be mentally sniffed out by the audience.
Essentially, large group presentations are one way conversations (monologues) delivered as if they were two way conversations (dialogues). Although it sounds simple, the reality is much different. Passing a monologue off as a dialogue requires mental agility, practice and coaching.
Addressing a large group without first building your public speaking muscle is like attempting to fly a plane without taking lessons; if you’re lucky enough to get it off the ground, there’s still plenty that can go wrong.
