Dear colleagues,

The SIB is organizing again its highly successful series of classes on
presentation skills. These classes are taught by Damian Conway, a
well-known speaker and trainer, and they consistently receive excellent
feedback. All participants, from master or PhD students to lab heads,
will benefit from the techniques presented in these two courses.

There will be two separate courses:

* "Advanced Technical Presentation 1: Core Techniques" will take place
   on Thursday 17 May 2018.
   This class explains — and demonstrates — the key techniques that
   combine to produce an effective and enjoyable technical
   presentation. You can find more information at


* "Advanced Technical Presentation 2: Design and Delivery Skills", the
   followup class, will take place on Friday 18 May 2018.
   This class will reveal many additional subtle and sophisticated
   techniques that can lift your presentations from "great" to
   "extraordinary". It is recommended to follow the first class before
   attending this one, but this is not compulsory. You can find more
   information at


There is no prerequisite for these courses. Note that the number of
seats is limited, and they will be attributed on a "first come, first
served" basis.

For academic participants: 100 CHF per day
For other participants: 300 CHF per day

Practical organization - Location
The session runs from 9:00 to 17:00 approximately, with a lunch break
(lunch is not included). The course will be held on the Dorigny campus
of the University of Lausanne.

indicated above for each of the two courses.
