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 time I had to deliver a presentation was during my thesis defense last year. My thesis was about a proposal for a concept art for a short animated film that tackled mental health. During my presentation, I talked about how teenagers nowadays face new challenges concerning their identities in this era dominated by social media consumption. At first, I was really nervous but it turned out well in the end.

Woah, I think the last time I sis a presentation was like two years ago, for an English course I was taking due to my job. The presentation was about a TV series that I really like it I wanted to talk about it. The problem was that the teacher gave us just 10 minutes to prepare that presentation, but I think I did it well. When I'm really into something I can come up with many ideas.

A few weeks ago, I brought a presentation: a thesis defense. The presentation was going well. I can answer the questions of examiners smoothly.

Last time I gave a presentation was during my internship while I was finishing my Master degree.
I worked for an international group for five months. The presentation dealt with the features of a new elearning tool. The main idea was to show the potential of the tool as an opportunity of reinventing training courses for the employees. The attendees were all SME (Subject Matter Experts).
I made it, but it wasn't easy at all. I didn't evaluate the time for each part properly. So, the time went by, and I had to adapt to give the most critical idea. I found a solution by providing training afterwards to some of them.

It's been a while since the last time I gave a presentation. I think.. it was about three years ago when I had to present my bachelor's thesis in front of my lecturer and peers. It wasn't really a pleasant because the moderator messed my presentation up. But.. I was, and still am proud of myself for pulling it off well!

The last time I gave a presentation, was 8 months ago, I think. I talked about what makes Earth habitable, and though it wasn't an enjoyable experience, I gained a lot of precious information to answer that question.
