Although there was a lot of work in preparing for this exercise, improvements can always be made.
There are two types of noise a speaker must contend with: Internal Noise Let's look at each of these. External Noise - consists of sounds, people talking, coughing, shifting patterns, poor acoustics, temperature too warm, too coldpoor ventilation, and visual interference such as poor lighting, or an obstructed view.
Internal Noise - if a speaker is confused or unclear about what he or she wants to express, this is due to internal noise.
Internal noise can also arise if the speaker does not know or misanalyzes the audience. The role of the audience and the speaker is to simultaneously communicate with each other. It is this transactional nature of speech that makes feedback, and attempts to eliminate noise, so important.
The most specific way a speaker can use to combat noise are: Use repetition and restatement. The speaker can help combat this noise by making an extra effort to use as many channels of communications at the same time. It is important to include both verbal and non-verbal means of communication.
Determine ahead of time what the facilities are like before you speak. This way you can properly plan your delivery or make adjustments, if necessary. I recommend, when practical, that you make a trip to the location where your speech will take place. I even go so far as to ask the exact room I will be presenting in and ask the hotel conference coordinator to let me visit the room and check things out.
On one particular occasion, several years ago, I had visited a room about 1 month before I was to speak at a large association meeting and noticed the room WAS NOT equipped for a microphone. This was a problem since the attendance was expected to be about to people.
I checked with the hotel if there were any other rooms available that same day of the event and I contacted the client and informed them about the situation. The client contacted the hotel and was able to change the room for their event. It was my planning that saved both myself and my client some embarrassment had we not changed the room.
I have since spoken for this same client every year for the past 4 years because of the attention to detail I provided as part of my planning when I first spoke for them.
This little "extra" effort on my part made me memorable to the client. Look at speaking engagements as opportunities to practice your speaking skills.

Tutorial and seminar papers.
Aspects of tutorial and seminar presentations that you will need to consider are preparation, content and organisation, delivery and review. This will help you when you come to finish writing up the written version of your presentation.
For example, if you are making a presentation on "Future Careers", knowing your audience's average age is vital. A well prepared speech that is ill-suited to the audience can have the same effect as a poorly prepared speech delivered to the correct audience.
