Choose a company not used in previous weeks of the course.Write a 2,450- to 3,500-word paper that includes:
A brief overview of this company’s product offering (manufacturing or service). This should be brief as the CEO knows this, but you are level setting with them for a common understanding. DO NOT FOCUS THE WORD COUNT HERE.
Detailed description of why a quality program would benefit the company. (Note: this can be an expansion of the QC, QA or QM that is in place or if nothing is in place, why they should have something.

A list of tools and metrics you would use to ensure success (be specific for their industry and business).
Explanation of how an external quality organizations would aid in determining your company’s quality program. Make a recommendation for a specific one to use-explain why you are suggesting they use this specific external quality organization, as in what’s in it for them or their organization.

You should focus the majority of your presentation (i.e., 8-10 slides) on what makes an effective presentation. Factors to consider in all forms of communication–Who is your audience? What is your message? Are you trying to persuade? Inform? 
Here are some guidelines to get you started: You are going to brief a small group of newly graduated  Business Students on how to present an effective presentation. Your audience ages are anywhere from 20-60 years of age, with various business backgrounds, military experience, and even some small business owners.
There should be an introduction slide, a topic overview slide, 8-10 slides on presentation techniques, a conclusion slide and lastly a reference slide. Use the “notes” feature of PowerPoint to list your talking points on each slide for me to read what you would actually be saying.
Submission Instructions: IMPORTANT! Save and submit your work as a PowerPoint Presentation with speaker notes
The body of your presentation should include at least 8-10 presentation slides, in addition to a title slide, introduction slide(s), and references at the end of your presentation for a total of no more than 15 slides.
