How to improve your scientific presentations – First online edition


The workshop “How to improve your scientific presentations” is organised by the Dr. Antoni Esteve Foundation. 

Designed with a blend of theory and practice, this new course not only covers basic skills in public speaking but also looks at shaping your message, structuring your content and polishing your delivery in order to have a greater impact on your audience. Defining a message, having a central objective, establishing a narrative, imposing a structure and attractive design of slides are some of the keys to capturing and holding public attention.

With a combination of plenary sessions and workshops with small groups, the course will take place from 9-13 November 2020, with a welcome day on 6 November. The course is coordinated by Brian McCarthy. 

Dates and Time: from Friday 6 November to Friday 13 November 2020 (inclusive), from 18:00 to 20:45 (all days)

Place: Online

The workshop is free of charge and has limited places. Participants must attend all sessions.
