Collective Commitments

2019 Technology Levy Proposal Board Presentation Review

C.        The chart has so much on it and the board sits far from the screen; they are always asking the tech to zoom in on things. Prefer to have the slide with the text more than the chart.

C.        Perhaps make that a graph for a better visual impact.

C.        What do you want to express?

A.        That >80% prefer learning with a device; maybe don’t need the graphs.

C.        You may end up spending more time than you want explaining things.

Q.        How to you say how these things are related to technology?

A.        I think that it’s all of them; do we need the original graphs? Or dump them all? I can put them in their packet as a supporting document

C.        Whittle them down to the top 5.

C.        You should simplify the text, eg first bullet point should just say refresh and then use your narrative to explain what that is and your point.
