Business Presentation – Group Speech Update

Well, after yesterday’s attempted compromise , we didn’t really get the groups organized for the group speeches.

So, here’s what we are going to do. Instead of having the speeches on 3 days, we’ll do it on 2 days. That means no speeches on Thursday September 25th.

Speeches will now be on September 30th and October 2nd, 3 groups on each day.

However, we still need to compromise (you, not me). One group still needs to move from Sept 30th to Oct 2nd. We’ll do that in the next class.

Enjoy your weekend 🙂
