OHSU Impact Challenge: “Show, don’t tell: Tips and tricks for public speaking, better slide decks and posters,” Dec. 12

Public speaking is an important type of scientific communication, but it can be scary. Developing public speaking confidence and the skillful use of visual presentation materials is important to a wide range of career goals.

In this Impact Challenge session, “Show, don’t tell: Tips and tricks for public speaking, better slide decks and posters,” guest speaker Danielle Robinson, Ph.D., will talk about how she stopped avoiding, learned to enjoy and got really good at public speaking. (Spoiler alert: private room karaoke may have helped.) Attendees will also learn about effective presentation and data visualization techniques that can make slide decks and posters more impactful and easier to create.

Wednesday, Dec. 12
2 to 3:30 p.m.
BICC, room 124
Please register
