Hi, everyone. Thanks for coming to this short presentation on our new product design. As you know, we've already redeveloped our 'Adventure' shampoo to make it more modern and appealing. And we've renamed it 'Adventure Tech'. Our market research established the target market as men in the 18–40 age range who like to be outdoors and also like technical gadgets, such as smartwatches, drones and things like that. We needed to create a bottle which appeals to that market.

So, today, I'm happy to unveil our new bottle design. As you can see, it's designed to look like a black metal drinking flask, with some digital features printed on it.

I'd like to talk you through the following three points: the key features, sizing and our timeline for production.

Firstly, you'll notice it has an ergonomic design. That means it fits smoothly into your hand and can be easily opened and squeezed using one hand. And, it looks like a flask you might use when hiking outdoors. The imitation digital displays are designed to remind the user of other tech devices they may have, such as a smartwatch or smart displays in their home.

I'd now like to tell you about the sizes. It comes in two sizes: the regular size and a small travel size. The travel size is the same type of design – a flask, also with imitation digital displays on the bottle. We were thinking of starting with one and following with the travel-size in a few months, but we've worked hard and both are ready now.

Finally, I'm going to talk to you about our timeline for production. You've probably heard that we're launching in two months. In preparation for that, we're starting the marketing campaign next month. You can see the complete overview of all phases in this Gantt chart.

In summary, the bottle's been designed for men who like adventure and technology, and it comes in two sizes. The marketing campaign is starting next month and we're launching the product in two months.

OK. So, any questions? Feel free to also email me for further information in case we run out of time.

I can't remember clearly that I had a presentation in my job, but I was trained full acknowledgement with researching enough information. Firstly, I started confidently to speak with everybody in the conference. Explaining all policies of Government showed up everybody. Secondly, I was received a number of question which I also gave clearly answers. Almost people satisfied all the requirements for my jobs. I think that the presentation was successful because people understood that the aim of the polices.

I gave a presentation six years ago when I was studying at University. I had to teach about medieval art with photos I have taken from a little village in the north of spain. At the begining of the speech I was really nervous, but in the midle of the conversation someone asked me something really interesting and after answering him I was able to speak with more confident. I hate speaking in public because I tend to stutter.

The last time I had to give a presentation was around 10 months ago, in the beginning of my last year in High School. It would be about a revolt that happened in Brazil outset of 20th century, coincidentally called "Vaccine Revolt", but unfortunately, the pandemic came and my school has to be closed, so I had to give this presentation online and it went kinda bad.

My last presentation was about INTERNET A FRIEND OR A FOE. It took 9-10 minute to go through the conclusion. At first, I felt little nervous then I gained confidence to speak all through the topic. It was my first experience of presentation.

I had to give my degree's final project presentation a few years ago. It was about an Android application that I had developed; a game designed for people with cognitive disorders using a Sphero 2.0. I was really proud of myself and so was my tutor, the jury liked the whole work, from the idea of the project to the way I presented it. Surprisingly, I've never been as confident as I was that day. All the anxiety and stress had disappeared and turned into enthusiasm and confidence.

I think it was one and half year ago for one my last courses in the university. It was a team presentation and we had to talk about our final project. The project consisted of developing a simple automation process using our knowledge of the subject acquired along the course. It was good, every team member got to talk about a specific part of the project. At the end, we got a good grade

The last time I gave a presentation was five months ago. I had to present my TFG to my university tutor by Skype. For those who aren´t Spanish, TFG means "final degree project". At first I was a little bit nervous because it is an important project for us, which takes about four months to do it. But everything went fluent when I started, and finally, my tutor really appreciated my hard work. I ended up my degree with an excelent grade (9 out of 10). Cheers from Madrid.

my last presentation was in October 2020. it was about financial analysis and valuation. we made an analysis to one of the corporations in the stock exchange of Egypt. The presentation went well and we won the competition, but I think I have to enhance my presentation skills because I spoke too fast and use my hands in the wrong way.
