Global Sales Pitch—Persuasive Speech

Directions: You have been placed into a  small group. Together, browse Google and/or YouTube and find a product or service from any country outside of the United States.

With your group, you will put together a Sales Pitch to try and sell your classroom audience this product or service. How can you make it appeal to American audience?

    The presentations should last roughly 6 minutes.
    Each person should a speaking part from within the 5-step sequence.
    As with all presentations, I will ask you to dress up a little bit–nice top and pants or dress/skirt are suitable options. Nothing extremely fancy, but definitely nicer than a regular class day.
    Use either one or a combination of Aristotle’s Proofs Ethos, Pathos, Logos and Kairos to sell your product/service
    Since we are an online class—Voice-Overs are fine as well.

    Ethos= Credibility
    Logos = Logical Reasoning/statistical information
    Pathos = Emotional Appeal
    Kairos = Time Element (at the right moment)

Here is a sample slideshow to look at as an example:

Most slides have minimal text on them, as the ethos, pathos, logos and kairos will be performed verbally by the group members during the sales pitch.
