The better your skills at public speaking, the more the community recognizes you as a leader in your field. This Presentation Skills program helps develop the skills to become an top notch public speaker. The presentation skills program examines the development of slides that are easy to follow and give the maximum information about the data. In addition we delve into the practical aspects of speaking such as proper pointer use, dress, enunciation, answering questions from the audience and more. We also talk about "nerves" and how to give a talk calmly and to even enjoy it! In one hour students and postdocs can learn to give better job talks, works in progress and conference presentations all of which will help them become the most sought after leaders in their fields.
