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. 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.
