We used the Group Problem- Solving Skills in order to execute every task critically step by step, with every task doing to its perfection, efficiently and effectively which resulted in having a successful wedding which was perfect and orderly, where the guests wished it could be extended for a day as every thing was available and at ease, from place to food and entertainment to even accommodation arrangements for the guests.

Part III: In the introductory sessions, I gave handouts to the class on my topic of study where they were able to follow my presentation, while I was concluding I played the video clips, which put my presentation at its best, with the help of supporting materials and organization skills.
Topic or concept: Effective Delivery Part I: Delivering the Speech Part II: When I was delivering my speech, I was making sure that the audience was attentive and following my presentation by actively interacting with them by asking the student questions and letting them share their opinion on my case study. I made sure my voice was clear with the right tone at the right point of my speech’s situation including using all my non-verbal communication skills appropriately. Part III: Without using effective delivery skills in public speaking may lead one to be misunderstood by the audience especially when using the non-verbal skills incorrectly or the audience may lose interest in a speech when they are not actively involved.
Types of speeches
Topic or concept: persuasive Speeches Part I: Giving a consolation speech in a friend’s burial Part II: A friend of mine had lost a very close and dear relative and we were there to give support to him. A woman stood to give her speech and she was too remorseful for the loss, her spirit was too low which made so many to cry including my friend and eventually she fainted before she could even wind up her speech. Part III: Since I was to give the last speech, I made sure to give my speech precautious to avoid further pains, grievances and inconveniences as we were supposed to be strong in order for my friend to feel supported, I avoided the most touching issues which could bring the past memories to my friend, thus creating a more somber environment.
