Topic 9 DQ 1
One of my strengths regarding professional presentations is organization and thourough research. One way that I can continue to build this strength is to prepare ahead of time and avoid procrastination. This will allow plenty of time to edit and re-edit in order to be even more organized. One of my weaknesses regarding professional presentations is being able to get my entire thought presented in a way that is not confusing. One way that I can work on this includes preparation and running through the presentation before hand and either recording it and watching it back or in front of colleagues to obtain construtive criticism that I can apply to the presentation to make changes that will enhance the delivery (Swathi, 2015). Being able to present professionally is essential for projects such as our capstone project for this class.
