Jean-luc Communication Workshop

This past May 2nd, Jean-luc Doumont gave an excellent workshop on his “three laws of communication”:

(1) Adapt to your Audience

(2) Maximize Signal-to-Noise

(3) Use Effective Redundancy

He gave numerous examples of how to apply each of these laws and demonstrated how they can be used to improve effectiveness of a oral presentation or scientific writing. He has numerous resources available for those interested in improving their communication skills.

You can download handouts for his various sessions from

His book, ‘Trees, maps, and theorems’, is an excellent guide to improving all aspects of communication
