Spring 2010 – SOM 301 Individual Presentation Due: In lab week of March 1 Grading: Class participation credit Objective: To practice presentation skills Purpose: To inform Audience: Peers, colleagues Format: Oral presentation SafeAssign: No Giving presentations is a critical skill in today’s business environment. Effective execution of a presentation is just as important as the development of the presentation. A lack of “show and tell” ability could jeopardize a sale, a promotion, or even a career. Despite its importance, many individuals have a distinct fear of public speaking and will purposely avoid giving presentations. It has been shown that by practicing and rehearsing public speaking skills, a person can reduce anxieties while increasing competency levels. Individual Presentation Workshop Required Homework 1. Read the articles found at the end of this document. Conduct additional research on the use of email in the work place and/or at school. 2. Prepare a two minute presentation to be made to the class. Your presentation is not a summary of the articles/research. Instead, your presentation will discuss how you believe email should be handled in professional and/or academic environments . In your presentation, consider some of the following: What is this issue or how is the situation unfolding? How is it changing or impacting individuals/organizations? Why is this coming about? What is happening? Is it positively or negative? When did this occur? Suddenly or gradually? Where is this occurring? What does this mean for the future of the individuals/organizations? What recommendations/impressions do you have regarding this situation or issue? 3. Create an outline for your presentation on note cards. For workshop purposes, clearly break your speech into three separate sections: 1. An opening – a means to get the audience’s attention and an overview of the topic or issue, 2. A body – a concise yet thorough description of the key concepts, and 3. A closing – a means to recap or retell what you have just told the audience. Audience: The presentation should be written for a general audience consisting of fellow students. The presentation should be in general terms and be concise, communicating the full intent of the issue in as few words as possible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
