Follow-up the course with a 45-minute 1:1 coaching session (held remotely) to receive tailored individual feedback on a specific presentation or more general delivery feedback.


Webinar 1 | How to Prepare

Creating a memorable presentation requires flexing some muscles that many of us don’t get to use very often. In this session, Anne and Christine will teach a short preparation process to help you build a memorable talk. We’ll discuss how to:

  • Have a clear point
  • Think about your audience
  • Structure your talk
  • Add stories, analogies and other fun insights
  • Maintain audience engagement

When slides rely too heavily on words and bullet points, the audience can become distracted and confused trying to read the slides and listen to the presenter. Christine will reveal some visually-rich options for slides that will engage and focus the audience. We will discuss how to:

  • Develop an effective message for each slide
  • Create strong visual companions
  • Reduce noise on the slide
  • Apply best practices to sharing image, data, equation and code slides
  • Use the blank screen to your advantage

  • Manage nerves before and during your talk
