Today I was given the opportunity to carry out a presentation to my work colleagues. I explained why the results CSL's obtain are so important on a local level and also on a global level. An overview of a typical training day was provided and this was followed by a demonstration of testing techniques.
I was pleased to find that 3 people were interested in volunteering to become CSL's. I intend to provide them with any extra information they require and encourage them to attend a training day.
Hello, my name is Nance Lewis and I'm a shiny new Citizen Science Leader. Here is a short story about the presentation I delivered to my colleagues at our team meeting on 19th June 2014. I hope this inspires you to go out and teach some of our colleagues about the great work being done through the HSBC Water Programme.
We had a team off site yesterday and I was given a slot to present the HSBC Water Programme. I found it a really fantastic experience because it was the first time I was giving such a presentation in the work environment. I had only 10 minutes to pass on the message but I managed to do it. After the presentation almost everyone gave me a positive feedback but the most rewarding is that one person has actually signed up to become a CSL this morning.
I have spoken on the FWW to my colleagues and have had tremendous changes in them. They now realise their role in preserving our freshwater. All 5 have signed up to be a CSL. Thank you all for your guidance.
Assisted with the EarthWatch open day in Leeds, providing information to colleagues about the HSBC Water Programme including Citizen Science field training days. Helped man the stall for a couple of hours and sent an email to my wider department promoting the event.
