As a (slowly) emerging presenter, I think this article presents several points that can definitely help in being engaged with your audience–whether one or many. The thing that struck me, though, was that these are things I think I’ve learned the hard way because of my Asperger’s Syndrome. Many who are high-functioning autistic learn how to communicate in exactly this way–learning to take turns, listen, etc. They can’t read the visual cues anyway (which makes working through the internet a lot easier for us since we are used to it anyway), so these are all steps that we have to learn over time to use in order to effectively communicate with the outside world. Think about that for a moment.
