  • 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.
  • don tknow if I agree with all these, but … good:
  • Good news: the hard part is already done. It’s (mostly) automagical!Stats give you the heebiejeebies?Tell your story.Once you know the what/why, the how is much easier.A little setup at the beginning & machines can do quite a lot.Don’t sweat it. A few basic measures you can explain & you’re set.Illustrate those numbers with real life people & examples.A tidy, professional report will benefit you & your superiors.Make it pretty.
