Workshop Body language: Tuesday February 15th 2011

The Female Faculty Network Twente is inviting you for the workshop:

Body Language -upgrading your nonverbal presentation

by Ariëlle Brouwer

on Tuesday 15 February, from 13.00 till 17.00 hrs.

in building the Drienerburght

“Why do I have the feeling I’m not being taken seriously?” “How come they don’t listen to me?” “Why is that promotion not given to me?”

In presenting and profiling yourself in the academic atmosphere, you might find that focussing on the content of the work is not always enough to make a good impression...

As a scientist, you are generally focused on the content of your work. Women, in general, also have a tendency to focus on the content. Yet, when talking about your work in a presentation, or everyday with your colleagues, your body might speak a different language! It can (unconsciously) send out signs that run down the quality of your story.

This workshop creates awareness and gives you clues regarding your personal body language, and will invite you to add some new skills to your repertoire. You will also learn what postures and positions are most useful (and impressive) during giving a speech at conferences or other public speaking events.

You will practice by making short and powerful statements in order to influence people and to make a good impression.


Upgrade your presentation!
