Presentations to Engage and Inspire

Making your specific area and topic interesting to people outside your research area can be a huge challenge. Fortunately, there are lots ways to engage an audience and enable them to relate to your subject, in terms of the material and the confidence required for speaking. This session will give you techniques to make your material easier to convey, help you deal with nerves, and make the whole experience more enjoyable for you and your audience. They are applicable for presentations to - and communications with - the public, and also for academic presentations.

This workshop will be facilitated by Jon Torrens, http://jontorrens.co.uk/. Jon has worked as a designer (and experienced the joy of deadlines) at games companies including Sony and Electronic Arts, and as a professional stand-up comic for a few years, so he knows how to engage and motivate. Occasionally he can be funny too. Now, as a coach and speaker, he teaches effective communication, using his personal skills to both show and tell. He delivers training for a range of clients in London and Cambridge, including Foster + Partners and Cambridge University.

 

This workshop is part of the BIOMEDICAL EARLY CAREER INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMME
