Topic: Teaching Effective Presentation Skills
Instructions: 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). 
I’ve also attached an excellent file slideshow demonstrating the keys to a successful presentation. 
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.
There should be an introduction slide, a topic overview slide, 8-10 slides on presentation techniques, a conclusion slide, and a reference slide. Use PowerPoint’s “notes” feature to list your talking points on each slide for me to read what you would be saying.
Submission Instructions: IMPORTANT! Save and submit your work as a PowerPoint Presentation with speaker notes.

Your grade will be based upon your ability to follow assignment instructions, research conducted, the effectiveness of the training proposed, critical thinking and analysis, and APA 7th edition format.
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, per the 7th edition of the APA manual.
Helpful Tips
I encourage you to go online to Purdue OWL, or Excelsior OWL, which have writing labs for students. Look up PowerPoint presentations in APA format in the search box. These websites will have helpful tips on best practices. TED talks are also another excellent source of good information.
