Effective Oral Presentations

October 28th, 2021 JEAN-LUC DOUMONT Principiae

Strong presentation skills are a key to success for researchers, yet many speakers are at a loss to tackle the task. Systematic as they usually are in their work, they go at it intuitively or haphazardly, with much good will but seldom with an effective outcome. This workshop proposes a systematic way to prepare and deliver an oral presentation: it covers structure, slides, and delivery, as well as stage fright.

An engineer from Louvain School of Engineering and a PhD in Applied Physics from Stanford University, Jean-luc Doumont is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, maps, and theorems and his book about “effective communication for rational minds.”
