Once the presentation is outlined, slides created and the talk scripted out, what do you do? You perform! In these workshops, participants receive coaching and practice in giving their scientific presentations. As scientists we are drawn to the content, yet the delivery of a talk can distract from or add to what we hope to discuss. Seeing and practicing the relational and performatory nature of scientific talks gives researchers the opportunity to develop their personal style as engaging speakers.
The professional presentations workshops highlight and develop everyone’s ability to perform, to stand in front of one another and connect. The improvscience scientists and performance directors create an environment with participants in which they can try on different ways of giving a talk and develop their own voice. Mia Anderson of Anderson Coaching co-designed this workshop with improvscience based on years of directing and coaching people with and without acting experience to give excellent performances on stage.
