Public Speaking Seminar for Research and Teaching

Seminar Date:    July 12 - 14, 2016
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Application Deadline: April 12
Registration Deadline: see invitation e-mail after successful application
Seminar language: English

Our 3-day seminar builds the foundation for you to become a truly skilled communicator in research and teaching settings (e.g. conference presentations, class lectures, invited speeches). Our skilled trainer teaches you the skills and techniques for delivering an outstanding conference presentation. We help you become that researcher who stands out at your next conference. The seminar also has a component dedicated to public speaking for teaching purposes, as many researchers also have some teaching assignments (if you don't teach, please let us know at the time of the application so that we can work out an individual solution with you). At the end of the seminar, you will depart equipped with proven techniques that you may continue to use in coaching yourself even beyond the 3-day seminar. We use state-of-the-art technology to provide immediate feedback on your public speaking performances during the seminar. Thanks to camera-aided feedback, you are going to be able to see your progress during this seminar, also helping you build self-awareness and self- confidence as a public speaker.
