Climate Information for Public Health Action (Routledge Studies in Environment and Health)

Policy-makers are increasingly concerned about the impact of climate variability and change on the health of vulnerable populations. Variations and trends in climatic factors and extreme weather events impact many health outcomes, including malaria, heat stress and undernutrition.ã??ã??


Climate Information for Public Health Action is based on the premise that climate knowledge and information can help protect the public from climate-sensitive health risks. With a focus on infectious disease, hydro-meteorological disasters and nutrition, the book explores why, when and how data on the historical, current and future (from days to decades) climate can be incorporated into health decision-making. Created as a collaborative effort between climate and health experts, this book targets a broad technical public health community, alongside development practitioners and policy-makers engaged in climate change adaptation. It may also guide climate experts in the development of climate services tailored to health needs. Written in an accessible, informative style, while maintaining the highest technical and scientific standards, it will also be a valuable resource for students and academics studying and working in the emerging field of environment and health.



The Law of Success

Once you’ve read this book you will understand what gives certain people an edge over everyone else. By following the advice laid out clearly herein you’ll be the one with an edge.

Taking the Numb Out of Numbers: Explaining and Presenting Financial Information with Confidence and Clarity

by Peter A. Margaritis CPA

” â?¦ a must-read for any financial professional.”

— Hayden Williams, CPA, CFO at the Washington Society of CPAs

From Peter A. Margaritis, CPA, “The Accidental Accountant,” author of Improv is No Joke, and acclaimed speaker and trainer, comes a new book that will transform the way you connect with audiences.

Learn how to …

– Control Your Anxieties — Peter shares tips to help calm your nerves and increase your confidence

– Craft Your Story — Learn the art of powerful storytelling to share complex information

– Connect with Your Audience — Discover how you can engage people and create interactive conversations

Cursed with Knowledge

If you’re like most financial professionals, you are “cursed with knowledge” and a comfort with numbers, spreadsheets, financial reports, tax codes, and investment models that collectively add up to a virtual foreign language to others who don’t possess a similar knowledge base. Because of this, you may have a hard time connecting with the very people who need your help the most — with your clients or your colleagues. It’s a challenge you must overcome, an impasse you cannot simply shrug off. You need to talk to your stakeholders about the numbers; you need for them to understand.

But how?

You can’t change the numbers themselves; they are true and vital and, to a financial professional like you, beautiful and reassuring. What you can do is change your delivery when presenting financial information and bring those numbers to life!

In his game-changing new book, Taking the Numb Out of Numbers: Explaining and Presenting Financial Information with Confidence and Clarity, Peter A. Margaritis, CPA, offers a refreshing new approach for connecting with audiences of any size — with one valued client on the other side of your desk or with 1,000 adoring fans.

Margaritis makes a compelling case that the secret to such audience connection can be found in the art of storytelling and improvisation. Through a book that’s equal parts practical guidebook, motivational support, and relatable examples, he helps readers construct their own storytelling methods and styles while learning a tried-and-true recipe for success in ensuring meaningful connection.

Learn the key differences between data storytelling and data visualization, and discover, step by step, how to become amazing and engaging by getting past your fears, then thoughtfully developing, preparing for, and delivering your presentation.

The principles explored in this book, while tailored to financial professionals, are applicable to anyone who presents technical information — like engineers, scientists, lawyers, doctors, or technologists.

With a foreword from Boyd E. Search, CAE, CEO of the Georgia Society of CPAs, and a collection of instructional case studies.
