Students will develop a three- to four-minute scripted training presentation that focuses on the foundations of business communication. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an audience with an overview of business communication. Visual aids such as images, clip art, transitions, and animations must be appropriately applied. Students must follow the guidelines for developing visual support provided in the textbook.

- Title slide
