Surprisingly (or not), the class a lot of people thought was a bit 'soft' brought everything together quite nicely today. What we had learned so far in our Communications course - mandatory as part of the Core set of courses - was in extensive use today.
A random team member was selected to present a group case analysis in Economics this morning. You could see some teams had taken some of the Communications advice to heart in terms of structure, slide content and presenting style. This was also supplemented by tips given by one of the lunch-time speakers last week, Gene Zelazny, the business presentations guru from McKinsey.
The afternoon brought another presentation demonstrating the use of Visual Aids - like a lot of things at MIT it was hands on as we had to create our own presentations in advance to be critiqued. It is quite satisfying to be usefully applying one lesson one week to another just one week after.
