The inaugural speech is used by the new professor to provide a clear and intelligible overview of his or her discipline and the direction in which they intend to take the research. It is a very special type of presentation that preferably will be made with enthusiasm and passion, maybe a touch of humor.
It has to be easy to understand for the layman and interesting for peers. The spoken text often follows the printed edition. In short, expectations are high. So it is good to prepare your presentation with the help of a professional presentation trainer and practice together.
