Present with Presence

Wednesday June 26th, 14:00 - 15:30


Science does not exist without communication. Not only do you communicate with your peers and colleagues, but also with opinion leaders, policy makers, investors, journalists and other stakeholders. Presenting is more than just being a voice-over of your slides. Presenting is something you do every day, all day.

In this workshop we will focus on how to make and maintain a strong, meaningful connection with your audience. On how to engage and relate to your audience by using the power of storytelling, your vocal and non-verbal skills. On how to Present with Presence.
