Approach: Product, Equipment, Ingredients, Process: Sit back and enjoy!
Aids: Objects – coffee bag, apron, maker, cups etc..; Poster – topic & key points; Overheads/Pictures – recipe, ingredients, process; Music or Video – smooth cafe music, video clip of coffee setting excerpts; Food – coffee & cookies for audience….; Handout – process, resources, recipe….. and so on — it is actually quite easy once you put you mind to it — collaborate with family and friends for creative ideas. Do the same for your persuasive (your powerpoint will only count for one VA). Responders: comment on postings – affirm, give more ideas, question, etc… – discuss.
