Presentation Training Seminar for Scientists and Engineers

Often, there is just no substitute for getting your information straight from the mouth of the best experts and leading authorities in the field. However, many experts, especially in the technical sciences, are usually more comfortable in front of a microscope or a particle accelerator than they are in front of a packed boardroom.

Our one-day "Scientists and Engineers Presentation Strategies" seminar is designed to equip scientists, engineers, and other technical professionals to deliver powerful, memorable presentations involving complex data or theories to non-specialists who need to understand such information. The interactive practice-driven format of this course uses demonstrations, small-group and individual exercises, and personal coaching to help participants apply new skills as they learn them. As a part of the course, participants will create individual presentations and deliver during a series of ten videotaped exercises before a small audience. By the end of the class, participants will be able to design and deliver complex presentations with professional skill and confidence.

On-Site Presentation Training: 
can be tailored to the needs of client organization and delivered on-site at time and location of client choice.

Scientists and Engineers will learn to:

  • Make your presentation come alive in such a way that your audience will be talking about it days or weeks later.
  • Present your material in a relaxed, professional way, using very few notes.
  • Determine what the audience needs and wants, and design ways to address these concerns.
  • Avoid confusing techno-speak and make your presentation accessible to key decision makers who may be non-specialists in your field.
  • Use and prepare the visual aids that are appropriate to the situation.
  • Fit the length of your presentation to the time you have been allotted, while also being flexible to last minutes changes.
  • Tailor your presentation to fit the venue and the event, because a professional conference is not the same as a press conference.
  • Develop confidence in using all types of presentation tools.
  • Overcome presentation anxiety.
  • Respond with confidence and clarity to questions and objections from your audience.
  • Employ supplemental material such as stories, jokes and illustrations to hold your audience’s attention.

Seminar Feedback:

"The instructor was great, and a pleasure to work with - of the five people at the seminar, four were scientists, so this is clearly an important demographic."

Greg Quinn Scientist, SDS - San Diego, California

"I have taken a presentation class in college prior to this class and many of the techniques were reinforced. The sheer number of practice runs that we had helped loosen me up and become a bit more comfortable when getting up to speak."
