Event description

Description

Persuasive and strategic communication skills

This workshop uses improvisation techniques developed in the theatre - as well as those developed in collaboration with the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University - to help those who need to communicate become more spontaneous, direct, personal and responsive.

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Know how to connect communicators and audiences, including professional colleagues, students, and public audiences
  • Learn dramatic techniques to enhance your presentation skills

This workshop will be presented by research communications specialist Dr Will Grant.

100% of participants surveyed in 2018 recommend this presentation to their peers. Participants said:

"I think it's a good workshop to try to overcome the fear of speaking in a friendly environment."

"The best take away was when, why and how to communicate more powerfully. I am going to give these skills a go more often in my work. Thanks a lot :)"

Strictly limited places.
