Facts and Figures

Purpose   Tick  The object is to learn how to put some flair and creativity into a type of presentation that at first sight looks quite dull. 
When preparing Tick  Devise a mini-speech that outlines an interesting fact or series of facts.
Tick  It can be humorous, astounding, heartfelt, inspirational, weird, hard to believe, or whatever. The only real requirement is that it must be true.
  Tick You can add greater impact by linking your facts and figures to the meeting theme.
  Tick As with all assignments, prepare and rehearse to ensure correct timing.
Before the meeting begins  Tick  Inform Chairman 1 of your title, and how you would like him/her to introduce you.
What to do during your assignment Tick You may need to use notes for this assignment, especially where numbers are involved. The challenge is to use them well, without over-relying on them.
Tick  Deliver the mini speech with due regard to pausing for impact, and to give people a chance to absorb the material.
  Tick  When you are finished, hand back to Chairman 1.
    That is the end of your assignment. You will be evaluated by the General Evaluator
