Friday 28 November

This was a much awaited date. Friday 28 November was the deadline for essay in HRM, activity 6.5 in GEM SOCI1101 Understanding Society and last but not the least: Marketing Presentation.

New Picture

a real bel bezer! Effective Time Management is required. Many Thanks to Google Calendar ๐Ÿ˜€

I woke up early. Time to get dressed up in ‘Classic’, yes, and in Black also. Don’t believe, see for yourself:

Unfortunately, I could not print my assignments since I lacked A4 paper. Nevermind, I took my printer in the car. My primary school friend accompanied me during the trip Triolet – Reduit. Happily, we were not stuck in the traffic jam and reached uni at 08:15. Time to put on my new shoes (since I drive bare footed). The new shoes are like ‘la pate canard’ but nevertheless, very beautiful!!!!

To be able to obtain power supply for the printer, I went into the student center (common). There, could socialise a bit with prashant and co. I had the great please to be able to print my assignments and get it a spiral-binding. At the same time, offered the printing service to some of my close friends. Les filles reviewed the slides and performed a bit of formatting.

A bit of tension in the common, after solving some problems, finally got in the place where the marketing presentation of classmates had already started. In the RB lecture theater, I could witness les caisiers de winners, lolz. Gosh, I imagine the faces staring at us. Our group (les blues) sat down and started to “warm up” for the presentation.

We witnessed that a limited time slot was alloted to each member and that they were required to complete their presentation within 20 minutes, not a minute more. We appreciated some presentations when lunch time came.

Bel Nissa during lunch time. Time to take photos and play with the mic on the stage. It was very cool, we were enjoying ourselves. The following images are witness of how much fun we had:

I got the time to paste the powerpoint into the Uni laptop.

Time for presentations to resume. The respected lecturer again perform the classification of the order of groups for presenting. Luckily ours was 2 group after. We were impatient to present.


Now its our turn……..started to get on stage.

“Aler commence decorer”. We had planned to paste stickers on the whiteboard and on the table of Pepi/Mirinda posters. On the table we placed samples of QBL’s products.

I opened the powerpoint presentation. Everything going as expected.

I started: “Good Afternoon everybody”. The lecture theatre still in ‘brouhaha’. No other option than to utter: “now please shut down”. No offense was meant. Just that wanted to have the attention of everybody.

We were waiting for Green light from our lecturer and came: “You may start”. off the plane went….and we performed on the following slides:

The fun part is on slide 33. I said: “Now I will try to explain the three levels of product”…..hmmmmm (I looked at the audience)……you (pointing to prashant), “yes you……..tell me, why do you drink?”

The interactive session was hyper fun because it was unexpected.

All the slides were well presented. Our team was fabulous, an epitome of teamwork.


Well, tous est bien qui fini bien. The presentations over, we took hyper fun taking photos of the classmates who stayed till 4:30pm.

we friends, went to relax and celebrate at Shoprite, then Belle Rose, Rose Hill (Boulettes), then Quartier Militaire (Tight sleeping) and then Kentucky with Smirnoff Ice – (dr. house, dr. wilson, dr. foreman).

Finally Home sweet home on Sat. 04:00 pm. ha……… is beautiful, isn’t?

    • Hi Niranjan, Thank you for appreciating the presentation.

      Our research was primarily on Interview at QBL and books on Marketing like Principles of Marketing 3rd ed. Brassington & Pettit.

      I will ask the team also if we could help you…
