I done my work weeks before and got the team leader to approve of it, he gave me feedback and I re-done the work and presented it again until the final draft was complete. We then put everyone’s work together and created our final presentation and scripts.
Throughout the weeks, I also learnt a lot about the management functions in the company, and how every function in businesses is very important.
