Your goal in speaking to a group is to either inform, persuade or entertain them. To achieve any or all of those objectives, you should know their interests, likes and dislikes. [ Before you speak to a group of people, you should learn as much about them and their interests as possible. You can can also find information about them and their mood at the beginning and during your speech. You can then tailor your speech to their needs and to better assure a positive reaction from them.
Your purpose in speaking to a group is to inform, persuade, or entertain the audience. [ Your motivation is to get satisfaction from expressing your ideas and getting recognition or applause from the audience.
In order to achieve your purpose, as well as to get the expression and applause you desire, you must satisfy the audience with something in which they are interested. Thus, it is important to know what your audience is interested in, what their expectations are and even what mood they are in
Benefits of Knowing the Audience n you know what the audience wants and likes, when you know what mood the audience is in, and when you know something about the audience, [ they become more interested in what you have to say.
Often the speaker does not even have to be a good speaker, and sometimes the subject does not have to be very good, but if the audience feels there is good communication, they will listen and enjoy the speech. They will also give good recognition and applause for the effort.
Knowing the audience can result in the benefits you want form giving the talk.

You can't persuade your listeners if you don't know much about them. Knowing your listeners helps you to shape your message in a way that's most likely to gain their acceptance. [ That's all the more important when your goal is to persuade, and not simply to inform, your audience.
Persuasive speaking aims to convince people to take some form of action. To achieve that goal, you must get your listeners to change their attitudes and beliefs. Or you must reinforce the attitudes and beliefs they already hold.
That means you must have a thorough knowledge of your audience before you prepare your presentation. (For more information on audience analysis, see our article, You Talkin' To Me?)
What you should know.
Any number of factors can affect how your listeners will react. These can include their experience, education, job or professional background, age, gender, ethnic background, cultural differences, and more.
Do your listeners share common interests? What's their relationship to one another? What recent experiences, if any, have they had that could affect their readiness to accept your argument?
What will your listeners expect from you? Do they have high expectations you may not be able to fulfill? Are their expectations realistic? Are you prepared in any case to address those expectations?
These are just some of the questions you should be thinking of as you prepare. Ask as many questions as you think are relevant.
