Create a 12-slide presentation. Follow the outline on pp. 343–346 for the critical slides of your presentation and their placement. Click here for help accessing a specific page number in your eBook. Hints: Include the highlights of your elevator pitch, which shows that you understand your business. The elevator pitch is a concise description of your company—its product, market, competitive advantages, and so on. Whether pitching your business to an investor or describing it to a potential connection at a networking event, you need to be able explain your business succinctly to someone in the amount of time it would take to ride up a few floors in an elevator. Use the worksheet in the text (p. 362 | Your “Elevator Pitch”) to develop your elevator pitch. Hints: You must limit your presentation to twelve (12) slides. You do not want to overwhelm your audience with too many slides or bore them with information they already know. Cite three (3) resources you have used to complete the exercise. Citations and references must follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length

For assignment #4, you have to prepare a PowerPoint Presentation which includes 12 Critical Slides and a list of references as a last slide. For the 12 CRITICAL SLIDES, PLEASE FOLLOW THE SLIDES IN TERMS OF TITLE AND INFORMATION EXACTLY AS THEY ARE PRESENTED ON PAGES 342 - 347 but specific to your company. Below each slide is a description of what you should include on each slide. Be sure to include enough details. YOU CAN ONLY HAVE 12 CRITICAL SLIDES, I REPEAT 12 CRITICAL SLIDES, EXACTLY AS THEY ARE IN THE TEXT, IN THE EXACT ORDER, EXACT TITLE, RELATED TO YOUR COMPANY. The text describes the 12 Critical Slides, which is what you have to do, in relation to your company. If you find that you can't fit all your information on one slide, please edit it. When I worked as an analyst, our team often had briefings to senior managers. For those briefings, we were always told how many slides we had to prepare, the exact order of the slides, and exactly what should be on each slide. So, this is not unusual.
VERY IMPORTANT: THE ASSIGNMENT ALSO REQUIRES YOU TO PREPARE A VERY BRIEF REFERENCE LIST, WITH AT LEAST 3 REFERENCES. PLEASE INCLUDE A FINAL REFERENCES SLIDE. THIS WILL BE SLIDE #13, WITH THE TITLE OF "REFERENCES". On this "References" slide, please include 4 or more references that you used to develop your business plan. You can pick your 4 most important sources or references. I mention "4" sources/references because, according to the grading rubric, including only 3 references will only "meet the expectations" and not earn the maximum points. Four or more references will exceed the expectations and earn the maximum points.
SO, TO RECAP, YOUR PRESENTATION WILL INCLUDE 13 SLIDES. THE FIRST 12 WILL BE THE CRITICAL SLIDES AND THE LAST SLIDE, SLIDE #13, WILL BE A "REFERENCES" SLIDE THAT WILL INCLUDE AT LEAST 4 REFERENCES THAT YOU USED TO DEVELOP YOUR BUSINESS PLAN.
