Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.



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.

My last presentation was two years ago.  I did a presentation for the colleges at work. It was about time management. The time was limited and I had to go a little faster to leave some time for questions.

sorry but why  i can't listen ,the voice is not available 

Hello neilly,

I'm sorry to hear that the audio isn't working for you. I have checked the page and it is functioning correctly, so it must be a local issue. Try accessing the page on a different device if you can - some devices, especially mobile devices, may have compatibilty issues. Also check your browser and/or firewall settings to see if they may be blocking audio content.

Good luck!

My last presentation was two weeks ago to my work´s partners and my boss in my job. It was about the route to achieve a project goal to design five community forestry initiatives. it was fine. I received good comments about my strategy because I could get expected results.

I remember that the last time I gave a presentation was about 2 semesters ago in my university. Since I am a non-native english speaker, I had to take the english classes and by the final test I had to give a random presentation. I chose to talk about the guerillas here in my country and I consider it was really well.

The last time I gave a presentation was two months ago in my job. That presentation is about pitching my clients to sell our products. I talk so many things like our advantages of our company to get client attention.
