COURSE OUTLINE Self-presentation as well as giving presentations are a common reality both at the university and at the workplace. Your message will only reach the listener or an audience if it really awakens their interest and curiosity. Finding the appropriate words is essential.

Yet, effective (self-)presentation requires additional skills. Visual tools and – even more important – the way you present yourself as a person have a great impact on how your message comes across to others.
This workshop provides participants with key competencies for successful presentations and self-presentation in general.

Topics include:
• Self-management, mindset and preparation
• Focus on your strengths and your goal
• Preparing the message: topic, target group, content
• Structuring and fine-tuning your presentation
• Selecting appealing visual aids where applicable
• Developing a roadmap
• Setting the stage
• Body language
• Voice management
• Interaction with listeners
• Dealing with nasty questions and attacks

Methods:
Along with trainer input and tips the participants will be provided with lots of opportunities to explore and practice their skills and receive video feedback. Each participant is encouraged to develop his/her individual style and thus expand their self-presenting and presentation abilities.
PREPARATIONParticipants should bring a presentation related to their PhD project they wish to get feedback on.
TARGET AUDIENCEPriority is given to PhD candidates and Postdocs. Open spots are available to researchers of all stages from member institutions of Academia Raetica.
