How (Not) to Give a Truly Terrible Talk (Roel Snieder,

January 24, 2018, 4-5 PM, Brown Hall 205

Did you ever listen to a presentation that was poorly delivered, where you felt you were wasting your time?  It happens, and when it does, you don’t want to be the speaker doing the delivery.  In this workshop we will compare the same talk when presented in two different ways and use this comparison to establish clarity on the do’s and dont’s of oral presentations.  After attending this workshop you know the importance of telling–and repeating–a story, the basics of effective use and design of slides, and how to use your voice and body for a compelling delivery.
