Making presentations and working in teams are important professional skills. As a graduate accountant with a Master's degree you are expected to be able to justify and communicate accounting advice and ideas in diverse collaborative contexts. In doing this assessment you are developing and demonstrating some of these skills.

Guidance for effective collaborative work is available in Resources.

Your report should be professionally presented, in your own words, as a PowerPoint with voice added to each slide. The voice addition that you make is your presentation to the business clients. It should not simply repeat what you have on the slides. Your presentation (5-7 slides not counting the slides with references) needs to sell what you have researched.

Your research should include at least 3 references, suchas the professional body articles as well as text books and peer-reviewed academic journals. Vendor websites are not appropriate sources of information for this task. Use appropriate referencing in your report.

Here are some resources you can use to help you prepare the best presentation. Only one team member need submit the PowerPoint presentation but each team member must submit a 250 word individual reflection on the team process.
