Conference Presentation – From Competence to Eloquence

Course Type: Workshop
Target Group: Doctoral researchers, postdoctoral researchers (experienced presenters)
Led by a theatre professional, the interactive training is tailored to the needs of experienced presenters, providing participants the opportunity to hone and optimize their presentation skills. Coaching is tailored to the needs of each participant. Constructive feedback from the trainer and group members gives the speaker a practical understanding of their individual dynamics, style and ability to tailor content to their audience and effectively deliver their core message.
Participants will deliver an 8-10 minute talk with feedback from the trainer and group members. Presenters are guided through interactive exercises to strengthen the argument, intention and narrative of the talk. Intensive coaching is given to enhance the eloquence of the language and to engage the listener both verbally and non-verbally.
The primary aims of how to “get the audience’s attention”, “keep the audience interested” and “make a lasting impression” are addressed in this workshop by means of practical exercises, trainer feedback and useful stylistic and rhetorical tools.
The session is designed with interactive activities and exercises, allowing the participants to engage with one another in various constellations. Exercises are used throughout the course to ensure that participants can immediately put skills into practice.
Please note: This workshop is targeted towards participants who are experienced presenters. For participants with little presentation experience we offer the workshop "Presentation Skills – Engaging the Listener in Your Academic Talk ".
Counting towards the Certificate "Leadership, Management, Science Communication and Knowledge Transfer" (Module III or IV, 8 AE).
