How to impress your audience with not only your data?

TEDx Amsterdam board member Salmaan Sana will give a lecture on how to connect with your audience and you can choose from 4 different workshops to practice your presentation skills .


The 4 different workshops:

  1. My research, what’s in it for you? Learn how to pitch your research idea and discover what your selling point is.

Recommended for: if you want to apply for a grant, need to convince other research institutes to work together or if you want to convince your boss of an idea for a new study.

  1. Powerful presentations! How do you use your voice and posture with more power and how do you present with confidence?

Recommended for: those who need that little extra courage, or those who have a presentation for a big audience coming up.

  1. Theatre Skills for Scientific Talks. Learn how to use theatre skills to reach your audience and keep them actively listening and interested until the end of your presentation.

Recommended for: those who like to think out of the box and for those who want to bring their presentation skills to the next level.

  1. The best job application. Nothing is as important as being able to present yourself at your best during a job interview.

Recommended for: those who will have a job application soon, or those who would like to learn how to present themselves better in general and want to learn how to respond to difficult questions.

This event will definitely push your skills, so you become a boss in presenting!
