My first speech in Management Communications, MORS-450, is coming up this Tuesday night, so I’ve been practicing for it via iMovie.  The assignment is to deliver bad news to a panel of superiors and request more resources (time, money, people, etc), a situation that occurs frequently at work.  We have a maximum of three minutes for the presentation, and afterward, we’ll receive feedback from our classmates, who have all been instructed to be brutally honest.

It seems easy enough, and yet, I only completed the presentation 4 out of about 30 times during tonight’s practice session, which lasted a little under an hour.  I still have one more night to work on this, so hopefully I’ll get it together before presenting it in front of my group.  Until then, enjoy this video I put together of a few of tonight’s takes.
