Choose one of the following topics for your Formal Business Report: Emotional intelligence in the workplace Improving a process at work Developing training for a new skill needed at work Communicating data and information Effective decision making Parts II and III: In Week One, you identified the audience for your Business Report. Now that you have completed final draft of your report, you will now present your report to that audience in the form of a presentation. As you create your presentation, consider who your audience is and make sure that the presentation is appropriate for that audience. The presentation should be an encapsulation of the main ideas of your report. It may be helpful to think of this as the summary of the report. Your presentation must support the main purpose of your Business Report, which includes informational slides and a voiceover. Your presentation must be between eight to ten minutes in length. While there is no requirement for the number of slides you must use in your presentation, it is recommended that you use at least five slides and no more than ten slides. You must include at least two pertinent graphs, charts, tables, and/or images from your report to help illustrate and summarize the information that you are presenting. Remember, if you did not create an image, you must properly cite and caption it using APA formatting (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
