“What is understood completely can be expressed clearly, and the words to express it come easily.”* Easier said than done! INAC organized a public speaking workshop on May 19 that was attended by ten PhD candidates. Trainer Ludovic Lecordier gave the participants the skills they need to express themselves clearly and to feel more comfortable when giving presentations.
The workshop covered how to tailor delivery to your audience, prioritize your messages, and express yourself authoritatively—but without taking yourself too seriously! The trainer used theater techniques to let the participants flex their voices and hone their body language.
