5. On the assigned day you will present your presentation and brochure to the audience  

Each member of your group should come prepared to address the audience.  Two will focus on the PPT presentation and two will hand out the brochure and explain its contents.  After your planned comments be prepared to answer questions that your audience may have.  You may not know all the answers, but being able to point them towards another source is one way to help in those situations.  Below is a link to help your group presentation.
