 ENG 215 Week 5 Persuasive Research Paper and Presentation

In any career you pursue, the skill of presenting yourself and your ideas will play an important role. Whether in person, across the conference room, by phone, or across continents, people need to be sold on you as much as they are on your ideas. In an academic and professional setting, an audience relies on the writer to apply sound logic in presenting an argument. The act of persuasion is the common purpose of all your writing, and all your communication in your career.
