Presentation Skills Plus
Wednesday 11 Jan, 1-2pm
Can you see the funny side of your research? Bright Club takes a group of researchers and turns them into stand-up comedians for one night only.
This virtual workshop is a training session to equip you for this challenge, though there is no obligation to perform if you attend. You’ll be guided through some techniques for shaping and presenting your ideas in an informal and engaging way, as well as some of the practical tips for public speaking. We recommend this for anyone who’d like to improve their presentation skills and confidence.
The session is open to all Doctoral Researchers and staff.
If the training whets your appetite and you want to take part in Bright Club…
Each researcher does an eight-minute set seeing the funny side of their research (and wider academia and science) in a local pub, with a supportive audience of about 70. Its great fun and good for communication skills, confidence and your public profile development. It also allows an audience to easily access your research. There’s also a virtual version of this event later in the year.
The workshop connects with Creativity (A3), Self-confidence (B1), Engagement and Impact (D1) and Communication (D2) on the Researcher Development Framework.
