This assignment has two parts. For the first part, you are to create a five to seven (57) minute dynamic video on your companys Code of Conduct. You may use any type of recording device you have to create this videosmartphone, laptop, webcam, or other type of video recorder. The specific points to cover for this video are listed below. As an alternative to the video, you may submit a four to six (46) page paper that details what you would say in such a presentation following the same prompts as the video assignment below. For the second part of the assignment, you will create a presentation using PowerPoint (or other equivalent software) summarizing the important changes and explanations regarding the code of conduct that you communicated in your video/paper presentation to email to the suppliers after the meeting for future reference. The specific points to cover are listed below. You must submit both parts of the assignment to receive full credit.
