Business Presentations in English – Class Speech #1 – Inspiring Business Person or Idea of Note

This is Class Speech #1.

The presentation dates for this will be 9/5 – 9/9 – 9/12. We will arrange who is speaking when(time and date) during the next class.

You should start thinking about this speech and what you will do to prepare for it.

“Cast your net out wide”  – this idiom means that you should really try to research and think of a person in the business world who is not a global name (yet), but who is still young and ambitious and has proved a lot.

For example, in Scotland (where I am from), there is only a population of 5.5 million people, but we still produce a lot of talented business people.

Michelle Mone, for example

Please download and print these files and bring them to class. We’ll have more discussion about what you should do to prepare and so on in the next couple of classes.

Advanced Conversation 2 – Fall 2013 – documents

Today, there was a lot of information for everyone to try to take on-board. However, things will soon all fall into place. Don’t worry…

Here are 2 documents that you should read (and download) very carefully. First, it’s a list of your blog assignments. It has the questions and the due date. Your blog assignments should be recorded and sent to me via email.

When you do this be sure to include your name, class, the due date and number (blog 1, blog 2 etc). You can easily record your answers by using the microphone on your cellphone and emailing them to cbskesl@gmail.com.

The other document is our sign-up sheet for the discussion groups. Students will be asked for their comments at the bottom of the page. You should be well prepared for this part of the class. Also, try to think about a topical issue, or something that’s in the news.  If you’re having trouble thinking of something just ask me and I’ll give you some (hopefully) helpful suggestions.
