Your task is to simulate a real business environment and engage your audience.

Practice before class to be sure that you don't exceed the time limit. Be sure you have your thoughts together. Be realistic! Dress professionally. Don’t read the material (your audience tends to have a VERY limited attention span!). Keep the material interesting! Go through the full presentation several times before the presentation date!
Think about what questions your identified audience might have and be prepared to answer them. When you are not presenting, take your roll as an audience member seriously.
The first task of a speaker is to realize his or her purpose in speaking, whether it involves addressing several prospective customers across a boardroom table or a convention of thousands.
