Event Description

This workshop on presentation skills is designed for participants who expect to present their research in a podium presentation, are preparing to defend a thesis or dissertation, or are taking part in job interviews. This workshop will enable participants to increase their confidence through discussing common fears and challenges with public speaking and testing strategies to overcome nervousness during presentations. We will collaboratively explore models for effective presentations and apply these during short presentations delivered by participants.

Following completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Plan, organize and deliver an effective presentation, and
2. Apply strategies to reduce nervousness during public speaking.

Facilitator: Jens Vent-Schmidt
