Workshop ‘Presentation performance: body language and stress on stage’

In this workshop we will bring the best out of you

Target audience: researchers (or anyone who wants to make a winning impression on stage).

Aim: the participants learn to speak to a group of people in a clear and convincing manner.

Approach: a combination of theory, practical exercises and inspiring cases. The participants will give a 1-minute presentation of their research.

Participants: preferably no more than 15 for an optimal group interaction, but we also work with larger groups (e.g. 40 participants).

Language: Dutch, English or Spanish.

Location: we come to your organization.

Trainers: Hans Van de Water or Toon Verlinden.

Thanks to the The Floor is Yours presentation workshop the quality of the master’s thesis presentations has improved dramatically. – Prof. Maarten Weyn, Applied Engineering Sciences (University of Antwerp)

Half or full day

Have your choice of a half (3 hours) or full day (6 hours, lunch break time not included).

The 6-hour workshop delves deeper into different techniques and leaves more room for practice. In the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to apply the tips from the workshop to give their 1-minute presentation a second time and receive personalized feedback.

Optional: feedback session

One or two weeks after the workshop (3h or 6h workshop) the participants will give their own presentation and receive feedback from us. Together we will discuss what else can be improved in their performance. This session is fully optional, but past experience has shown this to be of great value to the participants.
