This webinar will focus on both what to say in your conference speech and how to say it, to help you optimise your presentation and keep your audience interested, engaged, and inspired.

This webinar covers:

1. Making a good first impression

2. Holding your audience’s attention

3. Tips for confident presenting

About the webinar

While planning your research, you know that the end goal will be to publish your findings in either a journal paper, book or thesis. However, many researchers only start to think about the writing process once the research is complete. Failure to plan properly and make use of available tools and resources can waste valuable time and lead to frustration as you try to compile your manuscript.

This webinar covers:

1. When and how to plan your writing, including when to select your journal, or plan your book or thesis outline.

2. Tools that can improve your organization of data, references, thoughts, ideas and initial drafts.

3. Tips for successful collaboration in the research and writing process.

4. How to approach the writing process so that you avoid getting “stuck” and being left with an unfinished manuscript.
