Verbal communication is the one skill business leaders cannot delegate to others. Other classes teach how to create value; this class teaches how to communicate value. Your knowledge is powerful only when you can communicate it to others. The purpose of this course is to advance students' oral business presentation skills, so their messages are clear, their underlying reasoning is sound, and their presentations are effective. Class sessions include lecture, discussion, presentations and critiques. Each class, except classes 1 and 8, every student delivers a standing persuasive presentation derived from corporate clients' most recurring presentation situations. Students may be critiqued by the professor and by peers every week. Eight presentations are individual; Class 9 is a team presentation. The final in-class individual presentation is Class 10.
