Public Speaking Workshop

What?

As part of our Scientific Excellence & Well-Being initiative, we are offering Public Speaking Workshops that allow you to refine your skills as a (conference) presenter:

This is an interactive, learning-by-doing oriented workshop to improve presentation and public speaking skills. The focus lies on body language, voice and conveyance of key messages. During two evenings of 3 hours each, you will practice convincing others with your voice and body language. Our program consists of short theoretical inputs and many learning by doing exercises.

You practice in a protected environment of a small group (6 participants). You will receive lots of constructive feedback on how to improve your presentation skills as well as the opportunity to receive video feedback.

The workshops are led experienced speakers from the Rhetorikforum.
Places are limited so sign up soon!

This is a two-part workshop taking place on Tuesday, 11.02.20 and on Tuesday, 18.02.20, both times in CAB H 53. Each part will start at 18:30 and run for 3h.
