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.

The last presentation I gave was in a medical course in my university. It was about a scientific topic, that is the '' aortic arch '' - a large artery in our body-. I present with my group and I think it went so smooth and successful as we got a really good mark!

My last presentation was about two months ago. I needed to tell the audience the biography of one writer. But I did it with my group so it wasn't so nervous because I felt that I had some support. Everything was okay and we got good grades :)

I was responsible for developing a new website to a company, so after I finished the development phase and before deploying it into production, I gave a presentation to both the business owner and the website administrators. Actually it went very well, all parties was happy with the website design and functionality which made me very proud and satisfied with the work I have done.

My last presentation make me feel nervous and horrible. This is because I have no ideal what should I do since Im the first person to present. Then, I feel that I do a worst job in my last presentation.

Last time that I gave a presentation was about 6 months ago. I was in digital marketing bootcamp and students had to run a PPC campaign and present the campaign outcomes.

It took 1 hour and went really well for me. At the end, I ranked 1st in the bootcamp.
