    3. Set up a google alert for them

      1. Explain what is involved in this program

    7. Is this a firm you would want to work for (each of you answer this)?  Why or why not?

Present Leadership Topic: To help you improve your presentation abilities, as well as learn a topic of interest to you, please come to the first day of class prepared to sign up for a topic to present (this is an assignment!). You can look through the book and find topics in each chapter or use the index at the end to find one that interests you. You will research the topic and present it to the class as the resident expert.

Select the key articles that you want to use in your presentation. Update your findings by looking up articles that cite your key articles (or key authors).
