Finding a fresh perspective on your community

Preparing and Presenting the Slide Show

Any member of the team can give the entire presentation, or several members can talk about different topics. Using three speakers is optimal, since it provides a little variety and doesn't waste too much time during transitions.

Choose presenters that are comfortable in front of an audience, who can diplomatically give constructive criticism. Many times people feel uncomfortable pointing out the negatives, even though the negatives are necessary if the community is to make improvements. Effective presentations are balanced, including positives and negatives.

All members of the visiting team are encouraged to attend the town meetings to add insight during the question and answer period.
