This project is intended to broaden your oral communication skills with a focus on your speech preparation and your analysis rather than the actual presentation itself. Your presentation component will be included in your grade, but the majority of your grade will be based on your paper and the steps and thought process you took to develop your presentation, as well as your critique. I would like you to place your focus on the processes that led you to the final product. Business Presentations is an excellent chapter to use and refer to as you develop your presentation. Be sure to read the module before you begin. You should follow the format described in the text. You should also refer to reader benefits, as well as any other chapters that you feel may help you while writing. You will need to choose one of the following topics: Time management Working in Groups/Teams Listening skills Communicating effectively Planning/Conducting effective meetings Along with your research and opinions be sure to include how your topic can help to create a more effective work environment. WRITTEN REQUIREMENTS: Within a four-page paper (WORD DOCUMENT ONLY) you will need to include the following about your preparation for this speech: How and why you chose your topic A brief summary of your topic (about 1 paragraph) Your main idea Description of your speech goals Detailed analysis of your audience. You will be telling me who your audience is. (Most likely, you will be creating an audience.) Description of how you used reader benefits Description of how you organized your speech and why Any specific suggestions you used from your text to make your speech effective Analysis and critique of your practice speech Analysis and critique of your final speech (Where did you improve?)

Please be sure to detail all of the above as much as you can. SPEECH REQUIREMENTS: Your speech should be a maximum of 5 minutes in length (this means no more than 5 minutes for your final speech.) **Be sure to not go over 5 minutes in length.** You should record both speeches; practice & final speech for your written speech comparison/critique, but you will only need to submit your final video clip. Please be sure not to submit more than one video, only submit your final video clip. Your recording does not have to be perfect, the goal is to learn and improve from it. Do the best that you can with the resources you have available. If you would like to use you tube: You can simply copy and paste the “unlisted” you tube link in the project submission area found in your Lecture. You can go to the You tube settings when you create the video to choose “unlisted”. ***BE Sure to submit your video and Paper at the same time** It won’t let you back in to do two separate submissions An option to create and submit your video successfully would be to use the You Tube button from where you can submit your project. This is a blackboard tool that is available in the lecture area of the course where you will be submitting your work.
