Pitching your research

It has become increasingly important for scientists 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 to formulate the key message the best way possible and how to achieve a powerful introduction as well as a conclusion. In addition we focus on putting one’s vision into words and on the effective use of metaphors.

Since we want to be able to give personal feedback to everyone, we prefer to have a small group of no more than 12 participants.
The duration of this workshop is 2,5 to 3 hours. The language can be either Dutch or English.
