This is a presentation that I did for our group recently.
It was a really brief presentation and fun to do.
It is actually based on a scenario where a woman is stranded on an island and this is how to best utilize her resources by our determinations.
I generally put movies and/or sound into my presentations because it really gets peoples attention right off of the bat - even if it something simple like I did with the intro to this one.
