Research and prepare a formal PowerPoint Presentation on the subtopics noted below. The scenario is that this is a formal presentation you will use to present to an Executive Team seeking your professional advice. Your presentation will be detailed and will include at least 10-15 slides with detailed notes in the Notes Section of
each slide. (These notes will correspond with what you would be saying as that particular slide is shown.) Consider this assignment a ‘capstone’ assignment for this course. Thorough work is expected with detailed notes in the Notes section of each slide (which will include citations where appropriate).
Include a minimum of 5 different peer-reviewed sources. Citations should be in the notes section of your slides. Your full reference listings for all citations will be on your final slide(s) and should be in APA format. (However, since this is a PPT presentation, there is no need to double-space. Use single-spacing for each listing and simply double-space
in-between each individual listing.)
