This topic does not have to be related to your conference presentation topic, just related to your intended degree program. For example, if you are a culinary student you can use the keyword “culinary” in your search. The recommended website to use for locating a quality conference presentation is ted.com/. However, if you find a quality conference presentation on another site, please feel free to use that one as well. If you are unsure whether or not a video meets these requirements, please contact your faculty mentor as early in the milestone as possible and he or she can assist. You must find a presentation that includes audio and video (you need to see and hear the speaker) and you must provide the URL link in your response. The speech must also be at least 5 minutes in length. Using the below checklist, you will critique the presentation on its effectiveness by answering each of the following questions in your response. Speech Checklist Was the goal of the speech to inform or persuade the audience? Did the speaker communicate the thesis in a manner appropriate for the topic and audience?

Remember when writing critiques to be specific, constructive, supportive, and offer suggestions for improvement when appropriate.
