Communicating Your Research to a Non-Research Audience: The One Day Persuasive Presenter workshop
COMMUNICATING YOUR RESEARCH TO A NON-RESEARCH AUDIENCE: A One Day Persuasive Presenter Workshop
There are times in your research career when it’s important to communicate your research to a non-academic audience. Imagine that you’re building public engagement for your Research Institute for example, or that you need to recruit participants for a study. Or maybe you’re planning on a career in industry after your PhD.
Whatever the reason for presenting to a non-research audience, you’ll need to make sure that you present in a way that’s relatable and understandable. Attend this fun, interactive workshop to find out how to develop skills that will help you to polish your presentation, so that you get it right first time and every time you stand up to speak.
