Teaching Effective Presentation Skills Powerpoint

This  project requires you to develop a PowerPoint slide presentation for use  as a training tool with managers and supervisors on preparing an  effective presentation. As you move up through the workforce, you will,  at some point, be required to give a briefing or presentation to others.  Hopefully, one day you will also be able to develop one of your  worker’s speaking and presentation skills. There is great satisfaction  in taking a nervous employee, helping them to develop their  presentation, coaching them on delivery, and then watching them knock it  out of the park! With this in mind, your presentation should briefly  outline (i.e., no more than 2-3 slides) how to start a presentation  (attention-getting steps) and provide an overview for the audience. You  should focus most of your presentation (i.e., 8-10 slides) on what makes  an effective presentation. Factors to consider in all forms of  communication–Who is your audience? What is your message? Are you  trying to persuade? Inform? Week 5, Lesson 1 has a lot of great  information to get you started, as well as the Forum in Week 4 (the Guy  Kawasaki TED Talk).

Here  are some guidelines to get you started: You will 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.
