Testimonials from participants in our workshops:
Julie Morin-Rivat, PhD at Gembloux Agro-bio Tech:
I tested Hans’ method for a talk. The most difficult was to find the story to tell. But I made it! People laught because of my jokes and were attentive throughout the speech, even the very important American researchers. They congratulated me and said they had a good time.
Catalina Fievez, Coordinator of LLL Projects at Centre de Recherche Public Henri Tudor:
Hans is a very creative communication coach who will help you to make an excellent and dynamic presentation.
Kathleen Boons, PhD at KU Leuven:
With The Floor is Yours, Hans gave two very interesting workshops about making your scientific poster/presentation of interest. With some tips and tricks and the help of nice examples, he showed how scientific presentations don’t need to be dull. I’m for sure going to use his advice in the upcoming presentation!
Sarah Garré, professor at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech:
Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech invited Hans of The Floor Is Yours for a training to prepare the presenters of an upcoming PechaKucha event at the faculty for their challenge. He provided good examples, discussed open-minded the advantages and disadvantages of the presentation format with the participants, gave excellent hands-on tips and tricks and finally motivated all participants to improve their scientific communication in the future.
Marc Dufrêne, professor at University of Liège Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech:
If you think that you have good communication and presentation skills follow one workshop of Hans; he will expand your mind!
Nikolaos Stergiannis, PhD Researcher at VUB and Von Karman Institute, Consultant Engineer at 3E S.A.:
Hans gave us at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech one very interesting workshop about making our scientific presentations of interest. The audience (mainly young scientists) were really interested by tips and tricks to focus on main message and the story telling to captivate an audience. Many of them are now motivated to invest some times to prepare correctly a communication or a poster.
Researcher at Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (Mexico):
Everything was really enriching. Hans let me discover my errors and motivated me to improve them.
