Many jobs require that you communicate something about what you do to a group of people.

For example, you might Train a group of employees, Explain your products to customers, or Describe your work at a conference.

Creating a presentation is one way to accomplish these communication goals.

A presentation allows you to: show visuals and text.

This helps your audience follow what you are saying, engage your audience so people remember the information, and structure what you are saying, so you stay focused as you speak.

In this activity, you’ll make a presentation in Google Slides to communicate your work to an audience.

Your Google Slides presentation will be stored online in Google Drive.

People with permission can view your presentation on their computers, or you can publish it to the web.

This makes your presentation a valuable communication tool that you can use to share information.
