Coordinator: Dr. Daya Datwani

Overview

This workshop will focus on why it seems we cannot interest our audience and how we can avoid information overload in presentations. It will equip you with strategies on how to communicate efficiently and effectively while ensuring that you are passionate about your talk and the content remains worthwhile.  Too much information and unstructured presentations can lead to confusion as the point you are attempting to make gets lost in PowerPoint texts and nervousness of the presenter. Consequently, by learning how to present your content concisely and logically, you will be successful in conveying your message to the audience with clarity and a lasting impact.

  • 2 hours of pre-workshop online videos and exercises to get participants familiarized with key elements of presentations;
  • 2 hours of face-to-face time to review learning points and receive feedback for uploaded clips; and as needed,
  • follow-up support via email and course discussion forums.
