What is FBLA?
Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education association with a quarter million students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields. The association has four divisions:
Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) for high school students;
FBLA-Middle Level for junior high, middle, and intermediate school students;
Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) for postsecondary students; and
Professional Division for businesspeople, FBLA-PBL alumni, educators, and parents who support the goals of the association.
FBLA-PBL is headquartered in Reston, Virginia, and organized on local, state, and national levels. Business teachers, advisers, and advisory councils (including school officials, businesspeople, and community representatives) guide local chapters. State advisers and committee members coordinate chapter activities for the national organization.
The FBLA concept was developed in 1937 by Dr. Hamden L. Forkner of Columbia University. The first high school chapter was chartered in Johnson City, Tennessee on February 3, 1942. In 1958, the first PBL collegiate chapter was chartered in Iowa. The Professional Division, originally the Alumni Division, began in 1979. Joining FBLA-PBL in 1994 was the FBLA-Middle Level for students in grades 5-9.
The national board of directors is comprised of local teachers, state educators, business leaders, and the division presidents.
What is FBLA?
FBLA is one of the largest CTSO’s in America. It is considered a co-curricular activity, so lessons in school can be incorporated into the organization. Not only do FBLA members compete in over 60 events each year, but they also work to better themselves, their community, and their local chapter.
Don’t cloud the slides, just put what is the most important
Using the “Importants”
Check your grammar! Bad grammar is an indicator of a messy presenter.
Remember your homonyms like there, their, and they’re.
Dress for the Occasion
And remember ladies no flashy heels, boots, or sandals.
Remember looking nice and professional are different things. And don’t forget personal hygiene!
Instead, wear black conservative heels.
Remember to iron your clothes and always overdress if you aren’t sure!
Talk about what you love. If you love money, be passionate about your money!
OWN THE MOMENT!!
Speak, Don’t Read
Most likely, the audience can read, so use that passion, noted in the previous slide, and present it while speaking, not reading everything that is on your slide.
50% of communication is nonverbal, as well.
It’s called public speaking, not public reading!
Pump Up the Confidence!
Learn to love your style of presentation and incorporate different types of learning!
Make a mistake? Move on! Don’t negate anything you’ve said
Relax and breathe!
Whensendingamessage make sure you,and your audience can read it.
For appropriate font size, stand 2 meters away from your computer screen.
Preferable Size: 24
Minimum Size: 14
Instead use a simple color, a border, or a corner design.
Using a background with a lot of information is distracting, messy, and hard to see.
Thinkyouneed 12,000 colors?
Think again! Instead use an appropriate color scheme that is not distracting, like this purple!
Use the bottom half of the rainbow instead of electric colors!
Make sure your information is valid and relevant so that the main point isn’t lost
Why Have A Dog?
Do Something Extra
Set your presentation apart by adding a handout, a video, a sound clip, or an image.
Keep It Short
Don’t let your extra element rival your project. Keep it short and sweet
Add! Don’t Restate!
Make sure your handout or extra elements provides additional information, not information already stated.
