Sarah's presentation of course, she's very professional. She prepared well. She's very interested in the job so she collect data about the company and their competitors, she tried to make the presentation to the point to show them that she has inputs to the post.
Daniel is unprofessional and careless.

Listening and watching Daniel during the whole interview and realising that he was one of the two ''shortlisted persons'' among two hundreds other candidates, I'm wondering : Fancy what kind of candidates would be the rest 198 of them rejected...and what kind of degrees, MBA and knowledge are certified and offered by some universities.(Of course, we have to say that it was a scenario, not a real event, but though it's still a plain disappointment...)

I looked to Sarah ver confident and professional, She studied carefully the market in which the company is involved, She gave some interesting points to improve the main brand the company offers and the interviewers looked very pleasured with the results. Definitely She is going to be the next sales Director of WebWare Company.

I impressed to Sarah's presentation. She was really confident. She showed clearly its. She prepared carefully her presentation. I thought that Sarah will be choose.

Whose presentation impressed you more, and why?
Definitely Sarah's one. As during the interview she acts professionally.
She is still smiley, looks at the interviewers, she has prepared beforehand and thoroughly her presentation, took time to research information on the company and its products and made a good analysis of the situation. She explained how she worked, on which basis, and made even proposals to improve the sales.
She allows time for questions at the end of her presentation which is a proof of confidence.

sarah was more formal and respectful in her presentation

I agree on that AbdulAziz AZ

Sarah's presentation is way better than Daniel's. She (Sarah) presented in a professional manner, well-prepared, being open to questions, explaining things as asked and stating everything in detail as per the required limit. Being confident, calm, professional, optimistic and flexible and these qualities and a positive approach will surely deserve her (Sarah) to get the job.

To be honest, and as many comments here say, in my opinion Sarah's presentation is better than Daniel's one. That's because it's more formal, professional, she has studied the company previously and made studies about it.

Surely the two interviewers will contact Sarah soon.
