Jeffrey Hanson To Offer Second Workshop on How to Captivate an Audience with Your Research Story

Credit: ImagineCupYou love your research. Can you make others love it (and understand it), too?

Jeffrey Hanson will be leading a workshop that focuses on a story-based approach to presenting that works with virtually any research topic or discipline. While this approach is adaptable for nearly any audience, purpose, and time frame, we will focus most of our attention on shorter presentations for non-specialist audiences (such as The Grad Slam). Join us for a hands-on experience and step-by-step perspective to crafting your presentation. 

Jeffrey Hanson has been teaching various forms of written and oral communication to grads and undergrads at UCSB and universities abroad for the past 25 years. He has also given hundreds of presentations in 8 countries during that time and struggled mightily early on. Now, after many hours of presentation research, observation, and practice, he recommends a relatively simple approach that draws upon key elements of effective communication going back thousands of years. His mentors include contemporary pathfinders like Nancy Duarte (Resonate) and Garr Reynolds (Presentation Zen) and Jean-luc Doumont (Trees, Map, and Theorems).

Captivate an Audience with Your Research Story: Presentation Workshop on February 17

Is it possible to explain your research in a way that even a general audience can understand and appreciate—and in just a few minutes if necessary? You may already realize the related challenges if you have watched others make the attempt or done so yourself. It isn’t easy.

This workshop will focus on a story-based approach to presenting that works with virtually any research topic or discipline. While this approach is adaptable for nearly any audience, purpose, and time frame, we will focus most of our attention on shorter presentations for general (non-specialist) audiences (e.g, Grad Slam, job interview, etc.). Join us for a hands-on experience and step-by-step perspective to crafting your presentation.
