Presenting your Research with Confidence
This online training session is open to all ESRC funded and non-ESRC funded students within the seven WRDTP Partner Institutions. It is suitable for MA Social Research Students and PhD Researchers.
If you’re a researcher then at some stage you are going to have to present your findings. It’s tempting to get up and just read your paper, but to really speak to your audience you need to be able to communicate skilfully and with conviction. We’ve all been to dull presentations so it’s worth your while spending a little time to learn how to do it properly.
This workshop will provide a clear step-by-step structure that you can use again and again to give high quality presentations.
- How to make your message relevant to your audience
- How to structure and link parts of your talk
- Preparing materials, notes, handouts, PowerPoint
- How to handle questions
- Dealing with nervousness
