Assessment 5 Instructions: Capstone Presentation


Create a 10-20 slide
presentation with recorded audio that demonstrates how you would present and
deliver your capstone project to your intended audience. Your presentation
should be persuasive, use visual and graphical elements, and demonstrate
professional speaking and presentation techniques.

Often in a business
environment you will be asked to give a presentation of your knowledge,
research, or plan to a group of stakeholders. In this assessment, you will
present your capstone project. Imagine that your audience is a leader in the
organization or industry that you chose, that they have not read your paper,
and that you need to present the highlights to them in less than 10 minutes.
This presentation should contain all of the main elements found in your paper
and incorporate appropriate charts or graphics, as well as cite academic and
business resources appropriately.
