Business 8: Personal Entrepreneur PowerPoint

  1. Take the personality test at 16personalities.com and review the results.
  2. Go to the following link and find the entrepreneur (or celebrity) who matches your personality: bit.ly/2FSlRFU.
  3. Go to office.com and log in. The username is 1234567@learn.vsb.bc.ca, replacing with your own student number and the password is the same one you use to log in with school PCs.
  4. Include the following slides for the rough copy:
    • Title Page: entrepreneur’s name, personality code, your name, your block
    • Two Slides: Who is your entrepreneur (i.e. basic stats)? What is he/she famous for? What business and/or company is he/she involved with? Do a bit of research using other online sources.
    • One/two slides: What are your entrepreneurs’s strengths?
    • One Slide: How might you become a successful entrepreneur, given your personality, skills, interests, networking and other strengths?
  5. Complete the rough copy, focusing mainly on content, by next class. You will have 5-7 slides in total. You will also have another class to focus on layout (i.e. how it looks) before the assignment is due.
  6. Next Class: Modify your PowerPoint to meet the Tips for Effective Presentations (bit.ly/2FSnAuJ).
