in person workshop (@HHU)


This seminar focuses on self-marketing strategies and professional performance in scientific settings such as international conferences or meetings with peers and other researchers. It aims at improving your individual performance by successfully communicating and discussing your research, your expertise and professional achievements in different scientific contexts. This workshop supports strategies mostly in person, at meeting and conferences.

Day 1
• Self-presentation & Career landscape: Assessment of personal development, strategies & career milestones.
• Framing research: Why should others be interested in me and my research?
• Elevator pitch to introduce professional work
• Increasing visibility as a scientist, at conferences and other in-person settings

Day 2
• Body language and self-confident appearance
• Voice technique and rhetorical considerations
• Practicing a convincing performance in (un-)structured settings (conference and online)
• Individual feedback, individual tool development based on the individual authentic style

This workshop is particularly helpful for researchers who would like to explore their skills in a confidence-building environment, in which solutions are found for each individual style and character.
