Faculty workshop: Making the most of your presentation

September 14, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Strong presentation skills are a key to success for researchers and other professionals, yet many speakers are at a loss to tackle the task. Systematic as they otherwise can be in their work, they go at it intuitively or haphazardly, with much goodwill but seldom good results.

In this talk, Jean-luc Doumont, Ph.D., proposes a systematic way to prepare and deliver an oral presentation. He covers structure, slides and delivery, as well as stage fright.

An articulate, entertaining, and thought-provoking speaker, Doumont successfully reaches a wide range of audiences worldwide, as a trainer or an invited speaker at companies, top-ranked universities, research laboratories and major conferences. He is an engineer from the Louvain School of Engineering and holds a Ph.D. in applied physics from Stanford University.

Date: Friday, Oct. 5

Time: 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. (Breakfast provided)

Location: Palmer Commons, Forum Hall
