  • @KatharineHuntington Hi Katherine. Very good points. I prepared these slides first and foremost for a live audience and then afterward posted them to SlideShare. Some of them don't make quite as much sense as stand-alone slides. I always pass out a handout following my live talks, so I'd be happy to send that to you in an email. You can find me here: http://ensia.com/about/people/treubold/

  • Great tips! It would be nice if all the slides were stand alone, with the main point stated concisely in text for the slides that currently just have a big image. Most, but not all slides state the point in writing very effective. I easily guessed what your points were about the clowns, kids, and diving in, but I missed some of the other points. What exactly are you saying with the latrine? What is kuleradobe.com? I am a visual learner, and like everyone I tune out for a moment even when listening to the most compelling presentations, so the problem would not be completely remedied if I had seen the presentation delivered in person. Thanks for this great resource!

  • Todd Congratulations.
    This is a great presentation, summarizes the most practical recommendations in this topic or thematic. Could you give me permission to translate it into Spanish and share with my colleagues?
    All persons working in the training and education should see your presentation
    Thank you very much
