Communication Series Special Event: Making the Most of Your Presentation
- Organizer: PhD Network
- Venue: Northeastern University Alumni Center, 716 Columbus Avenue
Strong presentation skills are a key to success for engineers, scientists, and others, yet many speakers are at a loss to tackle the task. Systematic as they otherwise can be in their work, they go at it intuitively or haphazardly, with much good will but seldom with an effective outcome. This lecture, presented by acclaimed communications expert Jean-luc Doumont, proposes a systematic way to prepare and deliver an oral presentation: it covers structure, slides, and delivery, as well as stage fright.
