Say NO to boring presentations!
If you have attended an academic conference, you know that the vast majority of speakers are boring. Or confusing. Or impossible to understand. You do not want to be one of them! Imagine how your research career will take off when you begin giving impressive presentations. My one-on-one presentation skills improvement coaching can take your skills to the next level.
It can be hard to admit that you need help with your academic presentation skills or with your academic English if you are a non-native speaker.
My grandfather used to say “if you can’t figure something out, get the instructions out of the trash basket and try reading them.” Unfortunately, there is no instruction manual for presentations, because each one is different, with a different audience and a different goal. Now, with my one-on-one coaching, you no longer need to struggle on your own—perhaps for years—and you will have some tools you can use to improve not only your next presentation, but all future presentations.
Working with a coach is a smart choice. Researchers and students need someone who can give them unbiased advice and suggestions specific to their problems and concerns. If you are nervous when you think about presenting your research, practice will help you feel more confident.
One-hour coaching sessions via Skype
With just one coaching session, your presentation skills can improve drastically! Instead of the generic advice found in books and on websites, you will present your talk to me over skype and I will provide feedback on all aspects of it.
Only $49 for a one-hour session.
Is coaching for you?
You want to focus on your content, and show your audience how amazing your research is. You are a specialist, but not in public speaking! Unfortunately, how well you present your ideas will make an enormous difference in how well they are accepted. What would it mean to your success, to your future, if you gave an excellent presentation of your research? My inexpensive coaching session will identify what you need to improve and provide practice in front of a live audience (of one).
Only $49 for a one-hour session.
I love to speak in public! I get a little nervous right before, and ask myself “why did I agree to give this talk???” But then I feel so energized as soon as I start talking and I feel so happy afterward when people come up to me and tell me how helpful the information was.
I have given many successful talks and attended hundreds of boring (and a few excellent) talks over the last few decades. Practicing and obtaining feedback is the most efficient way to improve your academic presentation skills. Let’s practice together!
Naomi helped me improve two talks, providing feedback on both the content and my speech. I took notes on her suggestions and comments and they were a great help in improving my speaking skills in English. I like to review these notes every time I have to give a presentation in English. — Francisco, Electrical Engineering Professor
