Topic choice:

You are free to choose the topic but still stick to management topic dont make presentation on nonsense things like flowers, hobbies, babies, etc… Topics like MBWA, Lean, Six Sigma, Leadership etc etc are good! but you have to work on them..

If you dont have time for that you can pick up any management area you have worked or interested in and make a presentation..

Eg: Working people in IT can make presentation on life cycle of the project

BMS people can take porter’s five force model..

Case study – you can show an example of case study of any company

Company profile – You can take example of google , apple etc and talk about the company



Making presentation:

Last year you could make the presentation at home and bring it to the centre.

Do the same this time if they tell you to make it again at their centre… just copy paste the same stuff!!


5 mins presentation process

1st minute introduction

2- 4 minute content
