This one day course, unlike many presentation skills courses, is designed specifically for the practising scientist. Our trainers will cover all aspects of verbal scientific communication, asking delegates to present their own research in a conference format prompting feedback on style and content. Because of the trainers expertise in both science and communication skills, they will help to solve common problems (such as nervousness and voice control), as well as those unique to scientists presenting the results of their research.
The day begins with practical instruction on key topics associated with slide content and the process of verbal delivery. Each delegate is then asked to deliver a short scientific presentation with digital slides and to answer questions. The whole process is filmed and played back to highlight positive aspects of delivery style and talk content, as well as to identify areas that require improvement.
This course will be delivered on Thursday 12th October 2023 between 09:00-17:00 LIVE in person at Venner Shipley . Course materials are included in the course costs.
