Lecture Title(s)

A Revolution Without Bullets: Transforming Technical Presentations

In this era of infinite content, cutting through clutter to provide a clear and engaging message sets you apart. This lecture provides the building blocks for scientists and engineers to create effective scientific presentations that will engage their audiences in technical content, rather than bury them. This lecture covers immediately applicable strategies for content organization, slide design and delivery. These strategies, which are backed by extensive cognitive science research, will transform how scientists think about their work and the message they have to share.

The Art of the Elevator Pitch: Tell Your Story in 60 Seconds

Learn how to condense your work or your company story into a concise and engaging 60-second message. By reviewing example elevator pitches and analyzing successful strategies, workshop attendees will learn how to craft their own pitches. Through group practice and peer feedback, participants will walk away with an effective pitch that can be tailored for different audiences.
