Link or embedding of digital presentation


I chose to create a PowerPoint for my presentation because it is a form of technology that all of my staff is familiar with no matter what level of tech savviness that they are at.  It will also be easier to use no matter if we would do the presentation as a whole group or if it would be emailed to them to work through within a given amount of time.
