This (fun, informative) session on public speaking will present practical strategies for better presentations – whether those are small-scale, internal talks with your department, or whether you’re headlining a day-long event. We’ll talk about how to overcome jitters, stay on-point, and most importantly – stick to your time allotment! I’ll also give tips on putting together engaging slides or visuals. If time permits we’ll delve briefly into how to reverse-engineer these techniques and craft catchy proposals … I will (of course) strive to give a great presentation about great presentations and model the techniques, and I’ll pull together a tip sheet that attendees can take away with them.
