Oftentimes, one must persuade an audience to act. This requires the presenter to speak to the history of the presentation topic, as well as consider how best to persuade their audience to take the action suggested. If you find it helpful, you may wish to create an outline to help you prepare for your presentation. You need to convince your audience of your position this week.
Select a topic from the following list:
· An issue on a national scale that requires a resolution, such as a local policy or law you feel should be created or changed
· An event or action plan for your workplace, such as introducing a recycling program, or cleaning up a local park, etc.
Create an 8- to 10-slide Microsoft PowerPoint with speaker notes which does the following:
· Summarizes the topic and the effect of the issue on the community
· Proposes a solution or plan of action that addresses the selected issue or event, while including a balanced summary of potential audience responses to best persuade everyone to action
· Includes visual aids and outside resources
· Uses effective language to persuade your audience
