Strong presentation skills are a key to success for engineers and scientists, yet many of these do not exploit their potential to reach the audience. Systematic as they can be in their work, they go at it intuitively, with much good will but with results that could be much better. In this talk, Dr. Doumont proposes a systematic way to prepare and deliver an oral presentation: he covers structure, slides, and delivery, as well as stage fright.
An engineer (Louvain) and PhD in applied physics (Stanford), Jean-Luc Doumont is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, maps, and theorems, his book about “effective communication for rational minds”. He had his ﬁrst research and development experience at CERN, as a Summer Student (1985) and as a Technical Student (1987).
Despite our efforts, we did not manage to get a bigger room. Given the higher number of people willing to attend, be sure to arrive a bit of schedule to get a good seat.
