PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – January 16, 2015 – St. Joseph’s College (SJC) is pleased to announce that Amy Poland, Ph.D., assistant professor of criminal justice on SJC’s Long Island Campus, will be giving the presentation “Build Your Professional Toolkit,” hosted by Public Relations Professionals of Long Island (PRPLI) on Wednesday, February 4 at 8 a.m.

Dr. Poland will present a lecture about Prezi, cloud-based presentation and storytelling software used to present ideas on a virtual canvas enabling people to see, understand and remember the information.

“Prezi is an innovative presentation solution that makes it easy to present ideas in multiple ways,” said Dr. Poland. “Standard face-to-face presentations, presenting remotely, embedding presentations on websites and presenting on mobile devices, can all be enhanced with Prezi. Participants of PRPLI’s event will leave with knowledge of the basics of creating presentations using Prezi.”

“Build Your Professional Toolkit” will take place at Adelphi University’s Hauppauge Education and Conference Center in Hauppauge, New York and includes a crisis communications seminar.
