This seminar focusses on self-marketing strategies and professional performance in scientific settings such as international conferences or meetings with peers, other researchers and also online events. It aims at improving your individual performance by successfully communicating and discussing your research and expertise in different scientific contexts, online and in person.
First, you evaluate your professional skills and strategies so that a confident performance at conferences and meetings is backed-up with concrete achievements. Lessons learned from different steps in your career will be assessed and articulated. With the tool of the elevator pitch you learn how to engage other people in a meaningful presentation of your own work, how to make them trust in your research expertise and ideas and how to discuss your research with confidence. We will develop and put into practice your elevator pitch. Moreover, you identify a convincing and authentic style to increase your visibility in the science community, for example in more unstructured settings like meetings, poster sessions or conference dinners as well as structured settings like interviews and talks. The focus will be here both, on online and in person meetings.
Lastly, your physical appearance concerning body language and vocal expression are being developed to round up your professional and convincing self-presentation.
