Part 1: Post a Response
Your supervisor announced that you and a colleague, Bruce, will have an opportunity to meet with the company’s CEO in two hours and deliver a presentation on your team’s current project. Due to the short notice, Bruce believes your presentation should be an impromptu speech (delivered without notes or plan); however, you disagree with him. Under these circumstances, which type of speech do you believe you and Bruce should deliver? Choose one of the options below and share the justification you would use to persuade Bruce.
- Extemporaneous speech (carefully prepared and rehearsed).
- Scripted speech (written out word for word and read to audience).

Good afternoon Professor and class, I hope all is well. I would do the Extemporaneous speech because the speech should be carefully prepared and rehearsed before presentation. A scripted speech would be a boring speech, and put everybody to sleep. A church is where everybody should stay woke, but if they read the bible word for word the congregation is going to sleep or see a lot of yawning. Even though you only have 2 hours the supervisor trusted you with the job. You don’t let anyone present an important speech to the CEO’s if you are not trusted. The impromptu speech would have been ok, but if either one gets off subject the speech could be a disaster. I would tell Bruce we have two hours, and we are wasting time arguing about it.
