River Life in Four Slides

Back in January we pulled together a mini-presentation that is becoming our digital elevator speech. It starts to address the question of what we do, why we do it, and how.  We’ve got some more slides in the works for a more robust exploration of River Life’s intricacies, but we just couldn’t wait to share this one with you!

Have a look and let us know what you think!

    Looks like a great start to the “elevator speech” and it would appear that a lot of thought has gone into the underlying concepts.
