Presentation skills

Presenting Yourself and Your Work in a Memorable Way

Presenting one-self and one’s own work is an essential skill for a young researcher. The impact you will have as a scientist in the scientific community will also depend on the way you present yourself and your work. In this course we will focus on you as a presenter. Together we will uncover the core drivers/motivations behind your story and provide structure to bring your message across in an impactful way.  Multiple opportunities to actively practice short presentations will help you to gain confidence and to discover the storyteller inside you.
