This workshop is targeted at beginners and those wishing to brush up their presentation skills. Participants will hone their skills in giving scientific presentations in English and taking part in professional discussions following their own talks. The workshop will help increase confidence while presenting in the academic community and show the audience that they are confident.


In this workshop, participants will

  • define a successful presentation
  • prepare their own presentation
  • give short presentations in front of their peers, topped off with a 5-7 minute presentation
  • train how to use body language influentially and with success
  • learn how to take questions, also difficult ones, in follow-up discussions


Workshop participants implement communication and rhetorical strategies in their own presentations, by themselves, or in partner and group exercises. One main result is a 5-7 minute presentation with feedback from trainer and other Ph.D. students.
