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 a presentation was the last semester, I had to make an investigation about bio-oil and biogas, it was good homework, I enjoyed and belive the presentation was well, the teacher said it was noticeable that our team had done excellent research about the topic. An advice I can give some people is the better you prepare your presentation the better it will go.

My last presentation was two weeks ago, it was about myselft in a interview, that was terrible for me!, I had to introduce myself in English, but i was so nervious that i forgot to talk in English. Now, I'm waiting the answer about the interview to know if I'll get the job... i hope so!

I had a presentation a month ago. It was a final math project. Fortunately everything was fine, I was able to explain everything I studied fluently and without problems. I finally got a good grade and now I'm looking forward to the next semester.

I had the presentation 3 months ago in advance. It was discussed about my assignment and project which I had assign for course related with Web development in college. Fortunately, the person taught the course and discussed with me is the same person, which means usually, they are not always the same depending on the circumstances. The phase went effortlessly, since the tutor could comprehend all the things I said and taught me beforehand. As a result, the discuss was fluently but somehow, I also need to fix some aspects form my assignment to ensure it will get the "pass".

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.

My first time to have presentation was 5years ago it’was about climate change so it was a big subject I made many searching and I had to present it in front of hall class I was alittle nervous.but did really good jop .

Sadly I haven't given any presentations up to now.
