The OPDPA Professional Development Series aim to provide the postdocs and Ph.D. students with information and resources and to exchange of ideas and the intellectual enrichment of the trainees’ community. • Does your job require you to speak or present in front of your colleagues? • Would you rather jump out of a plane than speak in front of people? • Do you feel that you know and understand your material, but nervousness undermines your ability to communicate it? You will learn about voice tone and variation, body language and movement, gesturing, face expression, and appearance. Audience participation encouraged.
