In this online presentation skill workshop with Artsbased Solutions, the focus lies on both creating a compelling storyline as well as delivering the message effectively. It goes beyond a theoretical understanding of presentation performance and invites the participants to expand their range of action through improvisational exercises. The hardware is being developed just as much as nonverbal communication, connection to the audience and overall performance quality during a talk in a scientific context. The coaching is enhanced by practical elements of theatre and vocal performance that apply in the given context. In addition, it includes an individual feedback that focusses on specific, personal challenges.
Creating a concise and compelling storyline is the first step in such a training. With the storyline, the quality of the talk is determined. The participants learn the most important elements of storytelling and how to turn their scientific talk into a compelling structure. Furthermore, the success of a good presentation depends on its delivery. In this workshop, the participants will reflect, train and practice their delivery style and add effective skills to their presentation skill tool box.
