that I had and finally I spoke about what I learned from working for this company. I hope

you have enjoyed my presentation. Let me finish by thanking you all for your attention.

Now, if you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them.

Visuals

1.

As the title slide it should include the title of the presentation. The title of this presentation
was not the Key to Success as you would think, it was Marketing Mix!

On the title slide you should have also your name and ID number.

2.
Typically you would see the Outline of the structure on the second slide. This should
include how you intend to break down and present your topic.

3.

This slide is not clear. The results could have been shown in a more effective/efficient
way. Also presenting figures as numbers is not very academic. They should be presented
in percentages.
4.

Too much information. Not consistent with style e.g. complete sentences vs non
complete sentences. Should try and stick to the 5x5 rule which most is commonly
adopted by good effective presenters. This means no more than five bullet points per
slide and no more than 5 words per bullet point.

5.

Complete sentences not essential. The pictures distract the audience from what the
presenter is saying.
