This week, you are participating in a professional virtual Communications Conference. The purpose of the conference is to share strategies for effective communication strategies. The purpose of your presentation is to guide the conference attendees (your classmates) in successfully applying the content of your presentation to their current or future careers.
Prepare a presentation concerning ONE topic from one of the following threads:
Thread 1 Interviews
Video Interviewing Strategies
Applying for an Internal Position or Promotion
Salary Negotiation Strategies
Thread 2 Company Communication
Conducting Virtual Meetings
Providing Employee Reviews
Presenting an Award
Delivering a Toast or Roast
Thread 3 Personal Communication
Thread 4 Technology
Social Media Tips and Tools for Business Communication (Explain how and why to use ONE specific social media platform or strategy for business purposes, such as effectively using Instagram Stories, optimizing a Facebook profile, or making a tweet go viral.)
Technology Tips and Tools for Business Communication (Explain how and why to use ONE specific technology tool or strategy for business purposes, such as how to take an effective photo, edit an amazing video, or use Padlet for business.)
You may narrow the scope of your presentation if you desire, such as focusing on networking within the military rather than general networking strategies or focusing on salary negotiations in STEM fields rather than in general for all fields. Choose a topic for your presentation that is practical and relevant to your career interests!
Your presentation must include the following:
The equivalent of 8-16 PowerPoint slides although you may use any appropriate virtual presentation technology to create and present (PowerPoint, Prezi, Slideshare, etc.). Carefully follow the guidelines for effective presentations discussed in Week 7!
Two professional research sources correctly cited in APA style. In addition to using in-text citations for specific sentences, bulleted items, or visual aids on each slide, be sure to also include a final slide or section of the presentation with the full bibliographic citations for all sources used in the presentation. See the References section in the Parts of a Report lesson in Week 6 for how to cite sources.
One visual aid created by you (such as a chart or infographic). Carefully choose and design appropriate visuals for your purpose as explained in the Week 7 lesson.
Audio or video delivery of the presentation. (There is no time length requirement.) You may use any recording software you feel comfortable using! Some free options include:
Recording a PowerPoint slideshow with audio narration
Recording a Zoom presentation
Recording a presentation using Screencast-o-Matic
