Presenting your Research with Confidence

All doctoral candidates and research masters students are invited to register for this FREE workshop from internationally-renowned speaker, educator and researcher Hugh Kearns.

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. It will cover:

  • How to make your message relevant to your audience
  • How to structure and link parts of your talk
  • Preparing materials, notes, handouts, powerpoint
  • Practicing
  • Delivery
  • How to handle questions
  • Dealing with nervousness

And it will be interactive and fun!

What else is on?

Now that you've given your presentation skills a boost, why not consider taking part in the University's Three Minute Thesis competition?! Cash prizes to be won and much fund to be had. Find out more: Three Minute Thesis.

If you're a doctoral candidate in the early phase of your candidature (especially those in the provisional year), don't miss Hugh's workshop on How to plan your PhD.
