Event description

Description

Researchers are frequently under pressure to communicate their information verbally, whether it is an oral presentation, in a meeting or an interaction at a conference. Performing well in a keynote presentation or impressing at a chance meeting is key to facilitating collaborations, building relationships with future employers and boosting your career. Public speaking and networking are key components to a successful career, both within academia and beyond.

This workshop will cover various situations that researchers are faced with regularly with regard to verbal interaction. We will cover oral presentations, how to get the most from your poster session at a conference, how to pitch your research, and how to network effectively. Participants will be introduced to various techniques that they can use and adapt to a variety of situations. Effective verbal delivery and engagement takes practice and this workshop will introduce participants to concepts and techniques that they can use to their advantage.

  • Improve your oral/poster presentation skills
  • Learn professional communication conduct transferable throughout your career
  • Practice pitching your research
  • Actively engage in good networking practice
