During your professional and academic career, you often have to make public presentations: to share your scientific results in front of the scientific community, defend your Master or doctoral thesis or present your career and scientific path in front of a selection committee to obtain a new position. Communication is one of the most sought skills by employers, it’s also where most people need help. That’s why we have decided to organize individual online coaching sessions for NCCR Chemical Biology members only!
What you can expect from these coaching sessions
The coaching will be adapted to your specific needs. With your coach, Nolwenn Chavan, Scientific Communicator, you will work on one of your future or past presentations. The purpose is to improve your communication skills, such as:
- how to speak in front of an audience
- how to catch public attention
- how to interact with your public
- how to improve your PowerPoint presentations (including a powerful introduction and conclusion)
- how to structure your presentations
The individual coaching sessions will take place online via Zoom. Dates are flexible (in April 2020). Each call will start at 2 pm and will last a maximum of 60 minutes.
These sessions are designed for NCCR Chemical Biology members:
- Master students
- PhD students
- Postdoctoral students
