Sponsor and Present a 4×4

March 19, 2012 By: ekivemark Category: HCSFBay2012, News

Sponsor and present a 4×4

What is a 4×4?

– 4 Slides presented in 4 minutes.

How do the 4×4 sessions work?

We will be grouping together a series of 4×4 presentations around common themes. A series of 4 presentations will be presented followed by a period of open discussion with the participants who are in attendance.

What is the format for the 4 slides?

If you had 4 minutes and 4 slides what would you have to say?

Slide 1: What is the problem you are addressing?
Slide 2: What have you done to improve this situation?
Slide 3: What are your roadblocks/what don’t you know/Where would you like help?
Slide 4: Who are you and what drew you to tackle this challenge?

How do I get to present a 4×4?

Let’s reverse a half century of habit. Let Kids’ first bite be real food – such as mashed avocado, banana, sweet potato, or whole grains (like whole oats or brown rice). There’s no good reason not to. They won’t mind at all. They’ll thank you.
