How to Survive Public Engagement and Research Communication
– 1 – 3pm
– Mon 30 March
- Are you looking to improve your public speaking and presentation skills?
- Do you wish you could talk more confidently about your research to bigger audiences?
- And impress them completely with what you have to say?
Then join us for an exciting discussion and Q&A with an excellent panel of public engagement winners who’ve done just that!
Speakers will include:
- 3 Minute Thesis winners (both at York and nationally)
- PhD Spotlight competition winners
- Falling Walls finalists
- TEDx speaker
- Researchers who have published to large readerships through mainstream channels
They’ll talk about their experiences, share some secrets to their success in research communication and insider tips for how to wow audiences and create award-winning presentations.
By the end of the session, participants will have:
- Learned about some personal experiences of preparing for and winning public engagement competitions
- Gained some understanding of the processes involved in attaining success in public engagement
- Acquired strategies and tips for effective public speaking or doing oral presentations
- Received suggestions for practices/methods they can adopt to improve their own public engagement skills
This workshop will be especially helpful to anyone thinking about applying for competitions such as the Three Minute Thesis (deadline 1 April 2020!), Falling Walls or PhD Spotlight; or anyone looking to add that extra dazzle to their public speaking and presentation skills!
