View the step-by-step solution to:


the following activities:

1. Prepare for a speed-networking event.

Choose a company that you would be

interested in working for, as well as a job role within that company. The role you choose should be at a managerial level, such as a Marketing Manager or Human Resources Manager. You will need to be able to access enough information to be able to deliver a 2-minute pitch about the job role and company's products and services.

Assume that you have decided to attend a speed-networking event to network with other professionals to build relationships and to promote the business (without direct selling). The format for the speed-networking event is that each person has 2 minutes to present key information, so decide on what is the most effective information to present.

Your presentation/pitch should include:

• Your name (use your own name)

• Job title and brief description of role

• Company name and location

• Description of products/services offered by the company

• Who are your clients/customers?

• What makes your company stand out from its competitors?

• Reasons for attending the networking event?

2. Present at the speed-networking event

As you will be participating in a speed-networking event with other students also completing this assessment, you will complete your speed networking presentation more than once. Your assessor will observe you at least once during the speed-networking event. After your 2-minute pitch, the other student will also have up to 2 minutes to ask you questions.

During the presentation, demonstrate effective communication skills including:

• Speaking clearly and concisely

• Using non-verbal communication to assist with understanding

• Asking questions to identify required information

• Responding to questions as required

• Using active listening techniques to confirm understanding

Demonstration of these skills will ensure that you build the trust and confidence of those you are presenting to.
