Managers, HR staff, government personnel, and others who might be in a
position to work with technical communicators.

IMHO, we can exclude five-year-olds from our target audience, although
brighter ones might understand anyway, I suggest if we want to explain
our jobs to five-year-olds, we create a definition especially for them.

Cheers,

Sean

Ok, so I challenge you to define "professional audience". Do keep in
mind where the definition is to be printed. ;-)
