BioLearn™: Presentation skills for scientists (Oxford)

Thursday 2 March 

09:00 to 17:00 


Showcasing your company or latest innovation  to the industry is an essential part of successful growth, yet it can be a daunting prospect.


Our course facilitators, who specialise in both science and communication skills, can help alleviate the common issues associated with public speaking such as nervousness and voice control.


This one day course, unlike many other presentation skills courses, is designed specifically for the practising scientist. The course will cover all aspects of verbal scientific communication, and encourage delegates to present their own research in a conference format prompting feedback on style and content.


The course will begin with practical instruction on key topics associated with slide content and the process of verbal delivery. Each delegate will then be invited to deliver a short scientific presentation with digital slides followed by a question and answer session. The process will be filmed and played back to highlight positive aspects of delivery style and talk content, as well as to identify areas that require improvement.


Suitable for:

Junior research scientists of all disciplines from academia and industry, particularly those starting to present their work at conferences and seminars.
