Workshop on Public Speaking

Being a great speaker is a key factor in scientist's career. Presenting at different conferences, defending your thesis - the way you speak and perform does matter a lot. At YSF-2017, we will work on the skills of public speaking during two events:

Interactive lecture which will cover such topics as:
  • Why is it so important for scientists to share their achievements with the World and what is the place of public speaking skills in that process?
  • What are the most common problems that scientists face during their speeches and presentations?
  • How can we deal with those problems using systematic approach?
  • Five steps that you need to do in order to get better is public speaking.
  • What can you achieve with public speaking that you can’t achieve without them?
Workshop itself will include:
  • Part I Behavioral elements of public speech or “The nature of fear, influence and likability”
    • History of body language and how can we use it.
    • Likability that can change everything.
    • Hormonal system in public speech.
    • Why it is not enough to be influential in science papers.
  • Part II The theory of communication or “Dealing with the brain. How to pack your information to be understood”
    • Basic knowledge of how our brain works and what we should do to make its job easier.
    • Getting and keeping an attention.
    • Making our information graphic.
    • General rules of remembering.
    • Structure as a main instrument of logic.
  • Part III Techniques of enhancing your soft-skills or “Public speaking gym”
    • Principles of training.
    • Set of exercises.
    • Personal schedule of training.

During each part you will work in groups: doing exercises, practicing new techniques.

Please be aware that while lecture will be available for everyone, number of workshop participants is limited. You will need to register beforehand to attend the event. Registration form will be available soon.

More details on other workshops will gradually appear on this page.
