1. The 3 takeaways are the basic concept of the product must be present, the rules and regulations when it comes to doing something large, like planting trees. The third is that too many things on a presentation slide can make the audience feel insulted, as they can read it themselves.

2. Creativity and Idea Generation. Creativity is needed as it pertains to the look of the product, to make as many people as possible to buy the product. Idea Generation is even more important since it is the idea that creates the product.

3. I have learnt that the design of even the smallest feature in a product is important.
