NCCR SwissMAP is organizing a one-day workshop on presentation skills for young researchers on October 30 in Geneva. The workshop will be lead by Elena Kaufman - lecturer, director and stage performer. She will show how to overcome stress and nerves before giving a talk, how to best use body language and maintain eye contact during a talk, how to use and protect your voice, and other techniques helpful for presenting your work in a clear and confident way.
We encourage PhD students and postdocs to take part in this event. Participation is free for members of the SwissMAP research groups. The number of places is limited. For more information and to register, contact the SwissMAP office.
