    How to captivate your audience, get your message across and avoid that no-one gets distracted while you are presenting? 

    Conferences, workshops, competitions… you will face plenty of situations during your PhD where you need to present your work and convince your audience. This training will provide you with the guidance and tools on how to succeed with your scientific presentations throughout three sessions: the first one focuses on the structure and on the basics of slide design; the second develops how to begin and end your presentation so as to maximise its impact and the third one addresses advanced slide layout design.

    The first of these modules will take place on the 23rd of November: during the morning, we will go deep into the process of how to start organising your presentation. The afternoon will be dedicated to how to produce clear, effective slides that prevent your audience from diverting their attention. In addition, we will address common questions based on the slides previously sent by the participants.

    At the end of this first module we will organise a half-day practice (follow-up) session in small groups in order to fit the calendar of all partipants.
