Last week, on the Thursday before the students presented, I asked our interns to discuss what about their final projects made them nervous or concerned them. Their projects were Project Based Learning assignments surrounding the 5 Step Sales Process and presenting solutions for communication to our office. The following posts are the answers to that prompt.
“Usually, I’m pretty good with presenting in front of other people. However, with only one more day, my biggest concern about finishing this project is figuring out what I need to present. I know that I’m going to do a PowerPoint, a live demonstration of the Leaders After Hours Slack, and I want to create a Slack for The Leader to show how easy it is. The problem is that I don’t know what to put in my slideshow that would convey that I know what I’m talking about. I also want the slideshow to be the minor part of my presentation so that I can have more time to demonstrate the product. I think a lot of this is just last-day stress because everything seems to be clearing itself up. I’m excited to see how this is going to go!”
“With our presentation coming up quickly, I am beginning to worry whether or not I have enough information to show my project tomorrow. I have done a great deal of research on the company and on my solution, I just hope that I will be able to present my solution professionally and effectively. I am also unsure if I should create a document to pass out to the people attending my presentation, or if I should just print out the slides to my slideshow. I will definitely have to get a good 8 hours of sleep tonight and make sure that all of my accounts will be accessible tomorrow. Wish me luck!”
