How the activity meets the requirements of the assessment and grading criteria (please explain how the learner met the criteria and the qualitative aspects of their performance)

Danny spoke with a good pace and an engaging tone throughout his presentation. He provided a brief history of his brand/product Lucozade Sport and made good use of his research to cover all the necessary material using the appropriate advertising and audience vocabulary. However his chosen structure wasn’t totally effective. He made excellent use of cue cards to be able to address his audience fluently and confidently and chose an ambitious but professional piece of online software to deliver his multimedia presentation pitch (Prezi), facilitating appropriate transitions and fluidity of presentation via preloaded embedded AV and relevant text, image combinations. His presentation was clearly proof read using spell and grammar check appropriately. Grade awarded: M2, M3, M4, M5 Assessor’s name:
