Congratulations! Your poster or talk has been accepted to present! Now what?
Join us for a Midweek Mixer to discuss strategies and learn how to present your research in a clear and compelling manner. The main focus will be on e-poster presentations at the AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo (which include a short recorded presentation/pitch), but the ideas and techniques will be valuable for oral presentations, and for any situation in which you share your research.
We will discuss the importance of communicating our work, how to grab audience attention (and keep it!) and how to transform technical data into a language that everyone understands. This will be an interactive session with games and anecdotes as we delve into science communication in this new online reality. Can we convey our enthusiasm during online presentations? Does practice make perfect? How do we make a poster presentation and pitch appealing to people in other fields? We will touch on these questions and more.
Join host, Marnie Newell and moderator, Sarah Willett, Co-chair of the AOCS Young Professional Common Interest Group, April 15, 2021, 12 p.m. noon, CDT (Chicago, USA; UTC -5).
Registration is free for all, including those that are not AOCS members.
