Presentation Skills (School of Physical Sciences)

Tue 9 May 2017


This workshop will develop skills to become more confident, credible and engaging as a presenter. Starting with presentation theory and technique, part one is about understanding the tools you need to be engaging and become more confident.

Part two, that will take place a week after part one, is practice and coaching in a small group. You will be asked to deliver a two-minute presentation and try out alternative techniques to find your unique style and show how you can use this to inform your audiences.

You will be able to book for Part two part of the workshop after attending the first part. It will be open only to few students, and it is not compulsory.
