Presentations, whether at conferences or for key milestones, are a crucial part of the PhD experience and your professional development. They are a great way to share your research and to obtain constructive feedback from your community of scholars and practitioners. This two-hour workshop offers tips for getting the most out of these opportunities. Learn key techniques for structuring and delivering a presentation with a purpose, and discover effective strategies for communicating your message more confidently using engaging visual aids. We also discuss how to anticipate and respond effectively to questions about your project and progress to date.
