The workshop concept focuses on providing women scientists with the tools and tactics necessary to improve their overall presentation and communication skills. In particular we focus on gender issues, which can influence ones performance or overall ability to communicate effectively. Furthermore the workshop will increase awareness of non-verbal aspects and help to improve self-confidence. Constructive feedback from the trainer and group members give the participant a healthy amount of input while perfecting public-speaking skills.
