(PLEASE NOTE THAT SLIDE 7 DISCUSSES AN OFFENSIVE TERM FOR TRAVELLERS THAT SHOULD NOT BE USED. If you decide to use the PowerPoint, please use your discretion as to whether you choose to include that slide or not depending on your audience and whether it is relevant / necessary or whether you wish to add as a comment instead at the end of Slide 6 that there are other derogatory names used for Travellers but the ones in the presentation are the ones we should stick to.)  If you are unsure and want to discuss it further, please feel free to contact us.
