    at which my mom was present.

    Language is the tool of my trade.
    Recently, I gave a talk to a large group of people at which my mom was present.I realized that it was perhaps the first time she had heard me giving a long speech filled with standard English.
    ======================================
    Does "which" refer to "group of people" or "a talk"? Can you say "I was present at the group of people"?

    Re: at which my mom was present.

    It represents a talk. You can't say I was present at the group of people.
