Appealing to a Large Group

Another important part of your topic is to try to pick one that will appeal to a large
group. At first, you might think that picking an obscure topic will make you appear
smart, but in reality, it is more likely to irritate your audience and bore them if they
are unable to follow you. Below, we’ll consider some strategies you could use to
pick topics that appeal to large groups:

i. Pick a complicated topic, but focus on simplifying it. If you pick a
complicated topic, but focus only on demonstrating its complexity,
you’re likely to lose most of the audience, which won’t make you
appear smart, but rather arrogant or desperate to appear clever or
smart.

On the other hand, if the goal of the talk is take a complicated topic and to
demonstrate how a layman can understand it, you are likely to gain widespread
interest from the audience. Even among an academic audience of experts, they
will appreciate it if you can explain your topic in a way that all people—not just
someone from your particular area of expertise—can understand.
