PhD Chapter Meetup on public speaking

Have you ever been on stage? Did you feel uncomfortable? Was it a confident delivery?

Most of us need to communicate our results to the audience at some stage of the PhD. How you deliver the speech is often more important than what you are talking about. If you are looking down, talking quietly and use filler words all the time – nobody will listen, even if you have done an amazing breakthrough!

Improving public speaking skills will increase your impact a lot!

The PhD Chapter invites you to our very first Meetup where our guest speaker Min’an Tan will lead an entertaining lecture about public speaking. The meeting will be held in T-Centralen, Drottning Kristinas Väg 29, on Tuesday November 28th at 18:00 (ending around 19:30).

Contact board [at] phd.ths.kth.se for more information.

Please, register here.
