The Art of Presenting Science

Presenter: Carl Sall, CIH, CSP, Louis Berger, Exton, PA.

Standing up in front of a room full of professionals and giving a presentation is stressful on its own.  When you are presenting scientific data, the stress levels increase.  How do you present the data in a way to keep it interesting.  What do you do when you have detailed information to present?  What if the data you need to present is in a table that has 50 lines of data in a font so small you need a microscope to read the information?  These are common situations that presenters face.  This session will help you develop scientific presentations that will keep your audience captivated and asking for more.  Topics covered will include developing an opener that will hook your audience, effective presentation of scientific data, ticks to make your presentation better, and techniques to engage your audience.  

Join us  for this webinar presentation, on Thursday, April 4, 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).

Bringing Your A-Game – Stellar Sessions at AIHce EXP​

Have you ever suffered through one of those awful sessions? You know, the one where you can’t read the tiny print; there are more bullets than in the “Rambo” movies; or you just nod off. None of us want to be “that speaker” – the one who reads their slides without a care for their audience without engaging us. We all know several of the “don’ts” of speaking, but do you know the “dos” and especially how? This session focuses on what you can do to make your next session at AIHce EXP a really compelling one that leaves people talking about it (in a good way). Through demonstrations of various techniques while covering the topics, you’ll learn how to tweak or revamp your staid session into a stellar one.

WATCH​ "Bringing Your A-Game – Stellar Sessions at AIHce EXP.” Presenter: Jonathan Klane, M.S.Ed., CIH, CSP, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ.
