30 tips in 30 days on writing and giving talks at conferences.

#TALKTIPS DAY 01: Know Your Target Audience

I tend to speak at a lot of developer conferences, and a few design conferences. Every now and then I'm asked to bring some of my talks to present in-house at companies, everything from financial institutions to animation studios, all around the world.
It's really important to know WHO I'm going to be speaking to so I can make sure I'm sharing my message in a way that audience will connect with. I can make sure any cultural references don't get lost in translation, and that things that may be funny in one part of the world are still funny in another.
