About the Event
Giving a good research presentation can open doors to new collaborations, increase your odds of funding success and make it more likely that other people will respond to your ideas. But if we're honest with ourselves, scientific talks are all too often confusing, boring and overloaded with information. In this one-hour seminar, Prof. Scott St. George will share a few simple suggestions to make your next conference talk or seminar more enjoyable, engaging and effective.
You can find more presentation tips in his Careers article that appeared in the March 2020 issue of Nature:
