Introduction: The path to managing a successful project begins with the enthusiasm, knowledge, and leadership of a project manager. Project managers take responsibility for the accomplishment of an idea, plan, or assignment, and guide a team through each task while working to meet deadlines. Though every project is unique, project management skills apply in every setting. This is the first 2-3 min. speech to discuss a project’s plan. A 2nd speech will be at another meeting time for 5-7 min. to discuss the results of the project and what was learned.

As a rule, we should have no more than one speech longer than 5-7 minutes.
