Short description

A clear and convincing presentation of your results can make a huge difference to your research. You become more credible and make a lasting impression at conferences. It simply helps to speed up your career. It also ensures that decision makers better understand your goals; as a result, you may get more grants, collaborate with the best partners, or your inventions reach the market sooner.

Effective presentation of scientific data is not easy. Do you present all your results, or do you make a selection? And how do you make that choice? How do you visualize your results to effectively communicate your hypotheses and new insights to your audience? How can you design clear, straightforward charts without having to become a graphic designer?

Presenting a well-structured story helps to convince your audience and to make sure they remember your message better and longer. In the workshop, you will learn to use the power of storytelling to get your message across to your audience more effectively, even the ‘boring’ details of your results.

The workshop is highly interactive, so you are challenged to be open, take risks and take in relevant, constructive feedback. Of course, you can apply your new insights and knowledge the next day at work.
