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 have consistently received
near-perfect feedback from past participants.

All participants, from master or PhD students to lab heads, will benefit
from the techniques presented in these two.

There will be three separate courses:

* "Advanced Technical Presentation 1: Core Techniques" will take place
   on Monday 9 March 2020.
   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 Tuesday 10 March 2020.
   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


* "Advanced Technical Presentation 3: Persuasive Speaking", will take
   place on Wednesday 11 March 2020.
   Damian Conway will show you how to design, create, and deliver short,
   powerful, and (above all) different presentations for technical
   briefings, funding requests, business proposals, etc.

   If you need to give any kind of persuasive presentation, this class
   will provide you with the tools, the techniques, and the insights to
   speak more effectively, more convincingly, and more successfully.

   This class is independent from the other two (although you will get
   more from it if you have followed any of the others). 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: 400 CHF per day

Practical organization - Location
The session runs from 9:00 to 17:00 approximately, with a lunch break
