Faculty workshop: Getting your message across

September 6, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

No matter the medium — a presentation, a document, a graph, a poster, a curriculum vitæ or other still — communication boils down to one question: do you get your message across?

True to Jean-luc Doumont’s quest for the essentials, this lecture takes a transversal view at the traditional forms of communication to discuss how to convey a message verbally and nonverbally, and how to organize messages into a story — in any medium.

Facilitated by: Jean-luc Doumont, Ph.D.

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: Monday, Oct. 7

Time: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. (Lunch provided)

Location: Palmer Commons, Forum Hall
