60-Second Elevator Talk Workshop, Oct. 26 – for Graduate Students and Postdocs

60-Second Elevator Talk Workshop, Oct. 26 – for Graduate Students and Postdocs

Participate in the “60-second Elevator Talk Workshop,” and take your presentation skills to the next level! The Elevator Speech for Research is a very brief talk introducing yourself and explaining quickly what you do and why you do it. A prepared elevator speech will help you present yourself credibly and effectively in many situations. Even in situations where a full elevator speech isn’t necessary or desirable, just knowing your elevator speech's separate elements will help you answer sudden and unexpected questions.

This online, 2-hour, interactive and informative workshop covers techniques on how to prepare an elevator speech and what not to include!

The workshop will take place Wednesday, Oct. 26, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The Zoom link will be emailed to you once you have registered. Register here.
