- Show off to your family and friends
- It looks good on your resume and/or grad school application
- Supportive environment
- Overall great experience
You may be thinking “Yeah right, I hate presentations” or “Why would I do this? I don’t even get marks for it”. So you hate presentations- this is a great chance to show your nerves who is boss. Plus, when you are the head of a massive multi-national conglomerate, you are going to have to speak in public. You might as well start your quest for world domination now.
Also, you may not get marks for this, but the experience is totally worth it. Besides looking good on your resume, it is also a great chance to perfect your presentation skills. So, although you may not be getting marks for your presentation, you always won’t lose any marks if you stumble over a line or two. It is an encouraging and supportive learning experience, one that you won’t regret participating in.
