In my audience analysis I found that many people did not want to hear what I necessarily wanted to talk about. Over the last year I have been helping my sister plan her wedding and by doing so I have witnesses the rigor and painstaking thought that goes into preparing for a wedding. I am fortunate to be the maid of honor and taking on that responsibility has opened my eyes to the complicated world of weddings. In my surveying I asked is the audience wanted to hear what goes into a wedding as well as how to effectively plan a wedding. I also tried to ask the same number of guys and girls to get equal feedback; needless to say, none of the boys wanted to hear about planning a wedding but surprisingly only three of the girls wanted to hear of my experiences. Along with weddings I threw in two other topics that interested me: coffee and fashion. The two subjects tied for last place with 5 “no’s” and 2 “yes’s.” In order to hopefully keep my audience awake and entertained I thought it best to listen to them and not speak on either topic.
Fortunately I was up at an ungodly hour watching the History Channel and happened to stumble upon “Gangland,” a new segment. The segment went into grave detail about the gang Latin Kings. I, being raised in the south in a predominately white community, was enthralled by this gang life I had rarely heard of. I added Latin Kings as my final speech topic and it won by 3 votes- not very much but enough to say I tried to please the audience. Latin Kings received 6 votes for and 2 votes against. I believe the votes against the subject came from ladies; so, in order to accommodate them I will also incorporate the sister gang of the Latin Kings, the Latin Queens.
