Recent and Upcoming Presentations [Updated 12.18]

In the spirit of being green, this page will house links to my recent presentations, allowing attendees access without having to print copies for everyone. Presentations will  be up for at least 6 months.  If you have attended one of my presentations and want access to slides and handouts that are not posted here, please contact me (bspratford@hotmail.com) or leave a comment on this page.
