This session will explore some of the barriers to successful communication and suggest techniques and tools to help your voice be heard.
The session will be split into two parts:
During the morning we will focus on presentation scenarios from different perspectives and draw on the world of storytelling to gain some insights into engaging the audience and making your message stick.
In the afternoon we will examine delivery techniques and give participants the chance to build a presentation from the ground up, putting the skills gained during the morning into practice, and creating a short talk that will be of direct use in future business situations.

Delivered by Duncan Yellowlees.
Duncan has been training performers in one form or another for over a decade; first in theatre, then science communication and now in the art of presenting and strongly believes that although all these forms are different, the skills and fundamental basis are the same. The key is connecting to your audience emotionally as well as logically.
A masters degree in science communication forged a fascination with expert to non-expert communication, how it works and what happens when it goes wrong. Since then he’s thrown himself into the world of communication and presentation, learning about storytelling, psychology, and emotional response.
