Business Presentation

Course Objectives

This course is a course designed to help students learn how to give the presentations required for success in business. The focus of this course is on how to develop a logical argument based on topics covered in Critical Thinking and how to make an effective presentation in order to “motivate listeners to take action.” In addition, it teaches how to clearly deliver that message. Students will learn tips and techniques to create clear and compelling slides, and to deliver presentations through mastery of voice control, body language, and preparation.

  • When creating materials for giving presentations in class, students will learn:
    • What to expect before a presentation
    • How to develop a logical storyline that listeners can easily understand
    • How to create convincing slides
  • Students will practice the above techniques while giving and receiving feedback from their classmates.
