In the future, there will be countless opportunities for you to deliver a presentation based on graphical data. In this assignment, you will have the chance to develop that skill and practice it in front of your peers.
For successful completion of module one, students are required to give an individual PowerPoint presentation to their peers which focuses on a graph that relates to a company or industry of their choice under the direction of a focused assignment by the instructor. Students will outline background information on the graph, provide some analysis of the graph, and offer a suggestion as to how the company or industry should respond to the information shown on the graph. The presentation should run for 5-7 minutes. After learning key vocabulary, students will be assessed on the content and organization of the PowerPoint, as well as verbal and non-verbal communication techniques.
Thomas Donohue, the president of the US Chamber of commerce said, “Tariffs are beginning to take a toll on American businesses, workers, farmers, and consumers as overseas markets close to American-made products and prices increase here at home.”(Pickert, 2018)
Reade Pickert’s article (2018) in Bloomberg points out the damaging effect that new trade policies have on American companies. For this assignment, you will work to find out about an American company of your choosing and present a graphical representation of the effects of these new tariffs.
