The key to a good Powerpoint presentation is a presenter who tells an enthusiastic story and makes direct (eye) contact with the audience. But presenters often are a little anxious having the eyes of the audience on them. Therefore they are happy to have the audience look at the PowerPoint slides which they also use as a support for themselves, as a speaking note.
In this workshop you will learn a better way of presenting, by having an engaging story and making contact with your audience. We will discuss ways of dealing with nervousness and using PowerPoint only to show pictures that will support your story.
You will practice with small and easy assignments.
This workshop is meant for scientists who already have experience presenting with PowerPoint and want to have more impact with their presentations.
This workshop can be combined with Presenting Professionally with PowerPoint – Use of pictures in a workshop for a whole day.
