Presenting is a core activity for every scientists. You have to speak at scientific conferences, for funding agencies, for companies, at schools, you name it. You have to have your story ready. Most scientists have learned to use the following structure for a presentation:
But hey, a presentation is not a scientific paper! So why would one copy the same order? Even for papers everyone agrees that they are written nor read in the order that they are printed. Ask yourself, what is the first thing your read from a paper, the first thing you are interested in…
The result of using this order is that most people rate the average quality of scientific presentations as low.
We see a presentation as an act of leadership and renew the way scientist present by using the leadership model for presentations. This model is based on the desire to inspire, motivate and convince your audience. Relation comes before information; you need to come in touch with your audience from the start. This model helps you to do this according to your own style. A new way of presenting will make it more fun for you and your audience, and you will make sure they remember what you have said!

Or do you want your students or colleagues to become better presenters? Then contact us for a tailor made training programme.
