The Business Presentation Competition will give pupils the opportunity to work alongside our student ambassadors and improve their presentation, communication and team-working skills. By having an opportunity to present, pupils will gain confidence in public speaking, develop their research skills, enhance their analytical thinking and learn to work under pressure and to a deadline.
Pupils are asked to prepare 10 minutes long presentation on a business topic of their choice. However, the topic must be linked to a current business issue and explored in relation to either technology, environment (sustainability) or entrepreneurship (enterprise).
