Professional and Presentation Skills for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows

Created: July 13, 2016

This series of lectures and one-on-one coaching for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows focuses on the development of presentation skills necessary for success within the professional world. Through 3 short group lectures and 2 one-on-one coaching sessions, each student will receive personalized attention tailored to the realities of professional practice that goes beyond the basics offered in more general public speaking course offerings.  Participants will leave the workshop with increased skills in, among other things, non-verbal body language; critical listening and storytelling; audience analysis; and structuring a clear message through visual design.
The workshop meets three times on Tuesday August 9, Tuesday August 16, and Thursday August 18 from 4:00-5:30 PM, in addition to two one-on-one coaching sessions. The event will take place on the Chicago campus (exact room TBA). Registration is required as space is limited.  Register to participate.
