Week 2: Professionalism/Meet the client!


Activity 2
Objectives

Nice to meet you


To learn how to make a proper first impression Give each student five blank business cards and instruct them to write their names neatly on the cards. Split students into two groups: consultants and clients. There will be two rounds (5 minutes each) of the game so that each student can try both roles. Tell students that they have been invited to dinner with the client. Their job is to try to meet as many clients as possible and to give away all of their business cards. Heres the catch the client will only take their business card if they feel that the consultant is professional. Clients need to make a strong impression by making eye contact, having a strong handshake and speaking professionally. If the client does not think that the consultant is professional, they should politely say, No, thank you. Im not interested at this time. At the end of the two rounds, tally up the cards that each student has remaining to see who gave out the most cards.

Week 6: Profitability
Activity 1 Objectives Turning lemons into lemonade! Learn how to calculate profit & profit margin By a show of hands, ask the students who has run a lemonade stand in their local neighborhood? of class will receive a card with an item on it (lemons, sugar, cups) of class will receive a card with a price on it. One student at a time will paste their item on the board and the those with price cards will debate what price seems appropriate when all items and prices are on the board the students will have created a piece of an IS (leave a space for revenue: total units sold * price per unit) Description When all costs are compiled ask the students how much $$ they think is reasonable to ask for 1 cup of lemonade when they agree on a price, ask the students how many cups of lemonade theyll need to sell in order to make money. Fill in total units and cost per unit at the top of the IS. Explain that PROFIT = revenue - cost when a company is profitable it means they are making more money than it costs to operate the business Ask groups to calculate the new profit if 25 cups of juice are sold Final calc (complete as a class):
profit margin= (profit/revenue)*100

Activity 2
Objectives

Profitability analysis of Ben & Jerrys flavors


To practice calculating profit & profit margin Ask the class: Why would a company spending time calculating something like profit margin??
- Explain how a metric like profit margin is a simple way to measure the success of a business (i.e. profitability). Its easier to look at one number or one percentage rather than an entire Income Statement. Helps faster decision making, etc.

Ask the class: What is better? A large profit margin or a small profit margin? Why? Description Using the same IS from the Lesson 5, split class in the same groups as prior lessons and ask that they recalculate both the profit & the profitability ratio for each of the flavors we are now considering Share results with class What new flavor will generate the highest profit?? Connect these result with the results from the surveys completed in lesson #4

Week 6: Profitability
Activity 3
Objectives

Personalizing Profitability (if time allows)


Relating the concepts of Revenue, Cost and Profit to students Ask the class: Everyone think of a time when they sold something or provided a service in order to make money
- Chores at home for an allowance - Lemonade stand - Selling girl scout cookies - Raising money for a team or a cause

Description

When everyone has thought of something, ask them to think about the wide range of costs weve discussed over the past few weeks (labor, marketing, raw goods). What were the costs that they encountered in their effort to make/raise money? Ask volunteers to share w/class. Which of these ventures likely had the smallest/largest profit margins? As they class if they can think of different business ideas that would be very profitable (products/services with low cost and high prices). A white t-shirt sold by a top designer could cost $100+ but probably only costs the company < $1 to make. The designer will make a large profit on each shirt sold but might not sell many (the value is in the brand). If you go to Walmart, a white t-shirt will probably cost $5 - $10. The profit per t-shirt is much smaller BUT at such a low price, Walmart is likely going to sell many more t-shirts the value is in the volume.
