This project requires you to develop a PowerPoint slide presentation in APA format, for use as a training tool with managers and supervisors on how to prepare an effective presentation.
You are going to brief a small group of newly graduated APUS Business Students on how to present an effective presentation. Your audience ages are anywhere from 20-60 years of age, with various business backgrounds, military experience, and even some small business owners.
There should be an introduction slide, a topic overview slide, 10-12 slides on presentation techniques, a conclusion slide and lastly a reference slide. Use the “notes” feature of PowerPoint to list your talking points on each slide for me to read what you would actually be saying.
Factors to consider in all forms of communication: Who is your audience? What is your message? Are you trying to persuade? Inform?
Please support your ideas, arguments, and opinions with independent research, include at least three (3) supporting references or sources (do NOT use your textbook as one of the three required references, or encyclopedias, Wikipedia, unknown, undated, or anonymous sources, such as brief articles from websites), include a reference section (i.e., 1-2 slides), and cite all sources properly in the text of each slide, in accordance with the 7th edition of the APA manual.
Your grade will based upon your ability to follow assignment instructions, research conducted, effectiveness of the training proposed, critical thinking and analysis, and APA format.
