Presentation skills workshop with Jean-luc Doumont

Enhance your presentation skills with a hands-on workshop lead by Jean-luc Doumont (Principiae), organized by Photonics@UCI and CaSTL. Download the flyer here.

JL02-300Strong oral presentation skills are a key to success for engineers, scientists, and other professionals, 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, sometimes haphazardly, with much good will but seldom good results. Based on Dr Doumont’s book about “effective communication for rational minds,” this lecture proposes a systematic way to prepare and deliver presentations. Among others, it covers structure, slides, and delivery, as well as stage fright.
