Assessment Details
Background
Being able to present to an audience is an essential skill for project manager to develop. There
are a variety of different settings where project managers may be required to present, from a
small team meeting, to a large corporate board and shareholder meeting.
It is important that every presentation take account of whom the audience is. A presentation
delivered to an interdisciplinary audience who may have no specialist knowledge of your field will
e very different to a presentation in front of learned specialists – even if you are presenting
essentially the same project at both venues.
