Conference Presentation – Engaging the Listener in Your Talk

Course Type: Workshop
Target Group: Doctoral researchers, postdoctoral researchers
This is an activity-based workshop led by a theatre professional whose expertise is in helping the speaker effectively communicate the importance of the work and the core message in the talk. A key aspect of the training is repetition so that participants can strengthen the narrative, the emotional tone and the physicality of the talk in order to define and support the speaker’s own dynamic style. While perfecting public speaking skills, the workshop also offers participants practical strategies with which to tailor a general scientific talk to various audiences and settings.
Participants will learn how to concisely introduce themselves and practice their “pitch”, how to engage the audience in their talk, affirm their strengths and individual speaking style, improve their body language, effectively promote themselves and develop strong tactics for effective communication.
Counting towards the Certificate "Leadership, Management, Science Communication and Knowledge Transfer" (Module III or IV, 16 AE).
