Job Talks and Elevator Speeches
Led by Scott Morgan, a professional public speaking coach
This workshop is designed to help postdocs explain their work to various audiences with a wide range of knowledge backgrounds. The first section covers the elements that make up a good “elevator speech” for use at conferences and during interviews. Topics include: identifying common ground, adding personal connection, elaborating on rationale, and framing one’s work within the larger scientific picture. The second section covers structural and delivery techniques that ensure a memorable job talk, including: how to talk around and between data slides, how to control PowerPoint, how to proactively manage the question-and-answer period, how to tailor the talk to a specific institution, and how to weave one’s personal experience into the presentation.
