This article covers the following objectives:

  • Demonstrate the use of a central message and supporting arguments for a final presentation

  • Demonstrate the use of clear and concise answers to all questions after a final presentation

Purpose

  • Demonstrating technical as well as presentation and communication skills is highly valued by many employers.
  • Delivering your final presentation allows you to develop these skills in a classroom environment.
  • When you need to do this in a professional setting in the future, you can draw on this experience.

Presentation Day

  • Below are some suggestions to keep in mind on presentation day:
  • Review the grading rubric for the final presentation.
  • If you need equipment for the visual materials (projector, flipchart, computer with PowerPoint software, etc.), make sure it is available and test it beforehand.
  • Your instructor will provide the order of the presentation — which group goes first, second, etc.
  • Have someone in your group keep track of the time while you are presenting.
  • Agree on a signal to “speed up” or “slow down,” depending on how much time is left and whether the audience is keeping up with you.
  • If you have prepared adequately and practiced with your group, you should be confident about your presentation.
  • Remember, your group has researched and discussed the business more extensively than people in the audience.
  • It is your model — no one understands it better than you!
