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.
On the actual day of the competition, pupils will be asked to prepare 10 minute long presentation on a given business topic. The topic will be linked to a current business issue and will need to be explored in relation to either technology, environment (sustainability) or entrepreneurship (enterprise).
