Who is it for? Research Students and Early Career Researchers

What will it cover? This intensive and interactive course will help you to develop and deliver excellent conference presentations. Delivered by a leading expert in the field, it will be experiential in style and targeted specifically at postgraduate researchers preparing for important talks in the upcoming months. The content will include:

- What makes for a great presentation
- How to prepare effectively for a presentation
- Improving your body language
- Improving the use of your voice
- Creating effective visual aids
- Overcoming nerves and portraying confidence
- Feedback on your own presenting style

You don’t need to prepare anything in advance of the course. However there will be several optional 20-minute 1-1 slots available after 3pm (sign-up on the day) to talk through a specific presentation if you bring one with you.
