Assignment: Developing and Delivering Business Presentations

Your task is to revisit the presentation you created for Module 7: Public Speaking and submit a revised final version.

In this version of your presentation you will incorporate the feedback from your peer group and you will use the voice over feature in PowerPoint to narrate your revised presentation.

Along with the narrated slides, you will submit a short essay (minimum 300 words) to document and reflect on any revisions you made based on the peer feedback you received. Please discuss what and why you changed or added anything, and how these changed made the presentation stronger.

Your PowerPoint presentation should have a minimum of 4 slides: a title page, content slides, and conclusion. Each slide you include in the presentation must be narrated using the voice over function. Email a final copy of your presentation and your revision essay to your instructor.
