Jonathan Schwabish

 In this presentation, Jonathan gives you the conceptual underpinnings behind giving better presentations, and the tools and techniques to put them into practice.

When faced with the prospect of giving a presentation, researchers and analysts often simply convert their reports to slides: text is converted to bullets, and figures and tables are simply copied and pasted. The problem with that approach is that presentations are a fundamentally different form of communication to reports or journal articles.

Even if you don’t have aspirations of a world speaking tour, giving better presentations will help your colleagues, partners, and sponsors to better understand and, hopefully, act upon your work.

This session will explore:

  • Better ways to DESIGN your presentation
  • Better ways to BUILD your presentation
  • Better ways to GIVE your presentation.

Learning outcomes:

  • Shifting your perspective on giving a presentation from presenter-centric to audience-centric.
  • Understanding that presenting is a fundamentally different form of communication than writing.
  • Get exposed to better ways to design and create your presentation slides.
