Instructions: Public speaking is a fear that many people have--even more so than heights, flying, or creepy animals. Therefore, to make matters easier and smoother, it is important to consider audience, purpose, and format when creating a presentation that will accompany one's verbal communication among a group of colleagues and upper management. Create a 15- to 20-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with speaker notes that you would use to train coworkers on effective presentation techniques. Refer back to Ch. 14 in Excellence in Business Communication for effective presentation techniques. Include the following:
- At least five strategies from this week's readings on effectively developing and delivering a presentation to an audience
- Tips for overcoming speaking anxiety
- A description of how using presentations can help enhance the understanding of important information Demonstrate the effective use of visual resources by including at least three images.
