The topic for the Informative Speech must discuss an invention that or inventor who has impacted America and/or the world; an individual who has made (or is making) a significant impact in the world of business; or a company that has made a significant impact. You should avoid topics that are very well known, such as the telephone, the assembly line, Facebook, etc.
Time Limit for Speech is 5 – 7 mins.
When DELIVERING your speech you may use note cards or printed speaking notes. You are required to incorporate a minimum of FOUR VISUAL AIDS (such as four Powerpoint slides) and FIVE SOURCE CITATIONS (from five separate sources) into each speech. Please note – Wikipedia does not count as one of the five sources. You must say these source citations while delivering the speech. I will not give credit for sources listed on PowerPoint slides but not stated orally. Each speech has a TIME LIMIT, and I will deduct one point for every 30 second segment above or below that time limit. Since this is a business speaking course, you should always discuss the business/economic/personal finance/career aspect of your topic somewhere in your speech.
I need 2 page speech and 2 page speaker notes (page length is not a problem as long as the speech is between 5 to 7 mins.)
you can choose any inventor or company you like.
