Presenting your results is part of being a scientist: in your group seminar, on a conference, for your PhD defense or for general public. How can you do this convincingly?

The topics covered by this workshop are:

  • Planning and structure
  • Memorable start and ending
  • Speech, voice and body language
  • Visualization and presentation media
  • Slide composition
  • Poster design
  • Difficult situations
  • Personality and character
  • Video-feedback


My trainings are "work"shops, meaning that the participant apply the learned material to your own presentation and posters right there. Therefore everybody should bring presentations (old or upcoming ones) and posters to work with it.

I´m giving presentation skills workshops especially for scientists, because speaking the same language is a great advantage for tailoring the presentations effectively. Secondly, I know that most scientists talk about their topic with shining eyes. Often that exitement is gone, the moment they stand in front of a crowd. To tap into this enthusiasm during your talk is very important to me. And for that enthusiasm to reappear you need to feel secure with what you are doing in your presentation.
