Workshop: Voice Coaching and Public Speaking for Early Career Researchers

Triangel Studio, Tuesday, 18 June 2024, 14:00 - 17:30

As a scientist, you will often have to present complex topics in an accessible form. An expressive presentation of your research is an important part of this. This workshop will acquaint you with exercises to professionalise your speaking skills.
This means developing an awareness of your own voice and way of speaking; establishing an open posture; speaking clearly, understandably, and with variation. You will get to know and practice a warming-up programme used by professional actors and speakers. Furthermore you will receive handy advice for your voice and your way of speaking.
Please dress comfortably, and bring some still water as a beverage. Dr Ulrike Zimmermann, coordinator of the KIT Graduate School Cyber Security, will be present to facilitate English/German translations.

The workshop is free for members, who have prioritised access.

To register, email ulrike.zimmermann∂kit.edu by 3 June stating your wish to take part. Registration is first come, first served. Once you receive confirmation, your registration is binding. No-shows will incur the course fee.
