Pitching your research

lifes-a-pitchFor scientists, it has become increasingly important to be able to present their research and proposals in a concise and convincing manner. Be it in a meeting with colleagues, for a potential partner outside of the university or in a presentation to procure funding or grants.

Compared to regular research presentations, enthusiasm, a structured approach with compact contents as well as subtle references to one’s own achievements, are vitally important.
In this workshop we concentrate on a variety of short exercises looking at how to tell an inspiring story, how best to formulate the key message and how to achieve a powerful introduction as well as a conclusion. In addition we focus on putting one’s vision into words and the effective use of metaphors. Since we want to be able to give t personal feedback to everyone , we prefer to have a small group of no more than 12. The duration of this workshop is 2,5 to 3 hours. The language can be either Dutch or English.
