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.

This is not very impressive, It is the first time my presentation, I just looked like reading and I was not even dare to look at audience eyes, I know I am not good at speaking public.

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.

The last presentation I did was at my old job where I was working as a trainer, it was done better than I had expected. Our topic was entitled '5S method', where I showed them the main concept of this method and how it can help us in our tasks when we apply it in the right way.

The last presentation I gave was about my role in my organization. I am enrolled in a business communication course and course facilitator gave 5 minutes for presentation. Earlier he introduced adult learning theory and asked us organise our presentation according to it. My presentation went well. Course facilitator advises me to work hard to improve pronunciation. Thanks.
