From instruction sessions to conference talks, presenting is increasingly a part of our professional landscape. Effective presentations provide all of us with the opportunity to highlight our professional role, our projects, and our services. Still, it’s the rare individual for whom presenting comes naturally. Fortunately, the rest of us can develop the tools we need to significantly improve our presentations and the skill with which we deliver them. In this interactive workshop, you will learn the fundamental aspects of quality presentations and presenting, including:

• What to say and how to say it
• Tailoring your presentation to its purpose (giving a paper versus teaching an instruction session, for example) and to its audience (administrators, faculty, students, or colleagues)
• Improving delivery and connecting with an audience
• Effective use of presentation software and visuals
• Handling a question and answer session
• Reducing stage fright
