How to improve your scientific presentations – Next online edition
If standing up and speaking in front of an audience is a source of anxiety, the stress is heightened even more when the official language of the conference, meeting or congress is English. The Dr. Antoni Esteve Foundation course How to improve your scientific presentations (with more than 25 face-to-face courses in Spain and France) becomes online with a new version which offers numerous techniques and practical tips for improving scientists presentations in English.
With a combination of plenary sessions and workshops with small groups, the course will take place during five days (November 22, 23, 25, 26 and 29, 2021). The schedule of the sessions will be from 9.30 to 12.15 in the morning CET. The course is coordinated by Brian McCarthy. He is a writer, translator and instructor of several courses. He has also translated and edited dozens of articles on pharmacology, psychology and education. Before moving to Spain in 2005, he was a professional theater director and acting coach. McCarthy will be assisted by 12 coaches, who will be in charge of the practical sessions with small groups.
Designed with a blend of theory and practice, this new course not only covers basic skills in public speaking but also looks at shaping your message, strucuturing your content and polishing your delivery in order to have a greater impact on your audience. Defining a message, having a central objective, establishing a narrative, imposing a structure and attractive design of slides are some of the keys to capturing and holding public attention.
