LOL! That's a good one Kevin!

I must respectfully submit that speaking to a group of people who are about to jump out of an airplane, is different from speaking to a group of engineering project managers about the merit of technical communication.

A friend of mine teaches survival skills to military people (she calls it "teaching grown men to poop in the woods") and when you are talking about the topic of survival, or how not to die when you jump out of an airplane, the level of interest, and level of listening, is much higher.

I never had formal training, but I spent most weekends
for many years, instructing beginners in the fine art
of parachuting. Classes ranged in size from 2 to 42,
and in age from 18 to mid-50s (we did have some in
their seventies and older, but other instructors just
happened to get the few old folks).
