Workshop on Academic Practice: Public Speaking
The Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy and International Relations invites all of its students to a workshop about public speaking. The session is part of the Workshops on Academic Practice series, organized by the Doctoral School every year to provide additional skills-training for its PhD students.
What you say, how you say it, and how you make it relevant to the audience can make your speech a success or a failure! How many times have you observed a boring speech during the conference, and how much of it were you able to grasp?
Public speaking is a useful skill for those who would like to continue their career in academia as well as outside. Mastering the art of public speaking will help you improve your professional and private reputation, make strong first impression, deliver excellent speeches at the conferences and beyond, conduct effective meetings and enjoy the rush of public speaking!
Being an effective and confident speaker comes with time and lots of practice, however there are some essential tips and tricks on how to craft and deliver effective speeches, communicate in a fluent, confident and persuasive manner. This interactive workshop will cover essentials for anyone striving to become a confident speaker. The workshop is instructed by Jennifer Blanck, who is a distinguished Toastmaster with more than 20 years of management, communications and training experience in higher education and career services.
