Communication and Personal Impact

These individual and confidential coaching sessions will help you refine your presentation skills, speak more confidently as an emerging leader in your research field, and develop new approaches to your communication in a wide range of professional situations.

Constructive feedback will give you insight into your speaking style, how you come across to others, and how well your ideas are communicated.

Coaching will focus on your individual requirements, ranging from practical points about elocution and vocal projection, to holding the attention of a room, to structuring a compelling presentation.
