“Let’s Go On With the Show”: Skills for Developing and Delivering Conference Presentations
April 25, 2013 Sheraton ErieBayFront Erie, PA
Half Day Workshop: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Instructor: Jim Gerencser, Dickinson College
Sharing unique ideas and experiences with colleagues is an important part of our professional activities, yet we typically have little opportunity to practice the skills necessary to give effective presentations. How can I make good use of my limited time at the podium? How can I communicate my ideas clearly and concisely to the audience? And perhaps most importantly, how can I overcome my own anxieties about speaking in front of a crowd? Through a mix of demonstration and group discussion, this interactive workshop will address issues such as classic “dos and don’ts,”
individual speaking styles, and the appropriate use of presentation software. Whether you’ve never given a formal presentation before, or you have but wish to sharpen your skills, this workshop promises to be helpful and informative.
