Presentation Skills (Natural Sciences)

GraduateCenterLMU Workshop for Doctoral Candidates

Public speaking is a necessity in scientific life – and you can learn what the success factors of a good scientific presentation are. Very rarely it is the quality of the research results that causes problems. More often structure, orientation and personal performance can and should be improved to ensure that you come across as a creative and credible scientist.

This workshop supports you in finding out what your strengths are and in developing your individual presentation profile. You will learn how to lead the audience from your first appearance on stage until the last question in the discussion.

  • The preparation – what to collect and how to arrange
  • Being aware of what's happening out there – "reading" and leading the audience

  • The "show" must go on – state control or how to deal with difficulties
