When I tried to access this document it gave me a message saying that "This document has either been removed or made private by its owner", so is there any other way to access it?

Hi Amal

Not sure what the problem is - will get Juliette to look at on monday. I've just tried and it was fine. When I clicked on download it sent an email verificaiton to my email address and I could access from there. You may need to set up a slideshare account first, suggest trying that and let us know if it works! We delibrately don't keep documents on the Cloudworks site for two reasons - i) we want to utlise existing services that do it anyway such as Slideshare ii) there are possible legal issues with hosting third party material.
