How many boring research presentations have you sat through?
Presentations where the message was unclear, and you had a hard time staying focused…?
Our society’s development relies on research. But its findings are often communicated in ways not appropriate to the audience. That’s why we run this course.
First, we’ll look into the importance of defining the audience, the rhetorical problem, and the key message of your presentation. Then you will learn how to structure your presentation so it engages the audience. You will practice how to build arguments that both talk to the heart and the mind. By the end of the day, you will have a manuscript for a three-minute pitch presentation.
The second day is all about your slides, and your delivery of the message. You will be presented with theory, tools, and exercises. By the end of the day you will have an effective slidedeck, and you will record your presentation. You will present in front of the crowd and receive feedback.
I presented at a conference last week using many of the elements I learned from your course. I received very positive feedback. A colleague was amazed and said that my presentation was comparable to a TED talk. What I am trying to say is WOW and thank you for your course. I have learned an incredible amount.
