Polishing your PowerPoint Webinar
A Climate Ready Tribes Learning Community Event Tuesday, January 14, 2020 from 1:00-2:00 pm ET
Event description:
Have you ever sat through a PowerPoint presentation with slides that are hard to read, too wordy, or confusing? Was that presentation yours? Become a PowerPoint pro by learning how to use it to enhance your presentation rather than distract from it. This webinar will provide advice, tips, techniques, and strategies for how to make PowerPoint work for you, rather than the other way around. Making better, more effective presentations is an important tool to share your work and tell your community's story! 
Dr. Shasta Gaughen, PhD, will present on this important topic. Dr. Gaughen is the Environmental Director for the Pala Band of Mission Indians in Pala, California. She received bachelor's degrees in anthropology and natural resources from Humboldt State University in 1996, an MA in anthropology from San Diego University in 2001, and a PhD in anthropology from the University of New Mexico in 2011. Dr. Gaughen is Secretary of the Board for the Native American Environmental Protection Coalition, lead of the Tribal Working Group for the Climate Science Alliance - South Coast, and a member of the Institute of Tribal Environmental Professionals' Climate Advisory Group. 

This webinar is hosted by the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) as part of the Climate Ready Tribes Initiative's Climate and Health Learning Community, funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Anyone is invited to join the learning community and signing up for this webinar will automatically add you to the learning community listserv.  

Learning objectives:
By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:
-Describe best practices for using PowerPoint, including how to design slides, what to include, and what to leave out.
-Identify techniques for delivering PowerPoint presentations that are engaging and effective.
