GraduateCenterLMU Workshop for Doctoral Candidates

Public speaking is a necessity in scientific life – and it is possible to learn what the success factors of a good scientific presentation are. Very rarely it is the quality of the research results that causes problems. More often structure, orientation and personal performance can and should be improved to ensure that you come across as a creative and credible scientist.

This workshop supports the participants in finding out what their strengths are and in developing their individual presentation profile. The participants will learn how to lead the audience from the first appearance on stage until the last question in the discussion.

Workshop topics:

  • The preparation – what to collect and how to arrange
  • Being aware of what's happening out there – "reading" and leading the audience
  • Powerful presentation language – supporting your message
  • Platform skills – for clear visualization and high creativity
  • The "show" must go on – state control or how to deal with difficulties
  • Question and answer session – what to say if …
