For all the effort conferences spend on peer review and ensuring quality (novel) research is presented, too little attention is paid to the actual presentation. At several conferences during the last 18 months, I’ve noticed organizers are turning their attention to this challenge. Some conferences have gone so far as to make “presentation coaches” available to presenters. Good ideas can be overlooked through poor presentation skills.
Developing a strong, clear presentation is as important as conducting quality research and writing clear papers. AACE is pleased to announce a short session for presenters to ED-MEDIA ’09: Presenting for Impact. Additional information – including topics covered – are available on the site. The session is available without fee. If you have suggestions or resources to share on the topic of planning and conducting presentations, please let me know!
