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 structure what they want to say
- 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.

This course is ideal for individuals who frequently need to communicate their thoughts and ideas to others within and outside the company, and/or who find practical communication to be challenging.

Critical and Analytical Skills, Marketing and Strategy
"A strong grasp of marketing concepts and theory acts as the sounding board for any marketer as they build strategies to grow their business and launch campaigns. However, one also needs an understanding what happens in the real world. In addition to advancing student knowledge of marketing, I hope to provide that reality check for class participants."

Critical and Analytical Skills, Management Philosophy, Marketing and Strategy
The ability to assess a given situation, to quickly sift through data to indentify key factors, is essential in any profession. In business, it is the foundation of management and leadership.

Critical and Analytical Skills
Communicating your ideas and persuading others is critical to your success as a leader and business professional, whether as an entrepreneur, an employee of a large firm, or member of the public or not-for-profit sectors. No one is born as a natural presenter, it comes with a lot of work, practice, learning from your mistakes, and learning about yourself. My goal is to help you build your confidence and ability to present effectively, clearly, and persuasively, to a global audience. Find the uniqueness which you bring to your presentations, strengthen that, and use it to persuade, inform, and inspire others!
