Keep it simple and stupid! A golden rule when facing the media. A big challenge to many scientists. So, how can you reduce your information to the amount the audience can digest? How can you get your message across, no matter what the question is? If you want to represent your institution well and “sell” your topic to a wider audience, you should know what to expect from “the media”. And you should know how to influence the situation for the better. In this workshop, we will train you for a variety of situations as public speaker.
Please note that this course is GIGA internal only, targeting advanced doctoral students (who are in the second half of their studies). A separate training for postdocs and senior researchers will take place on 25 October.
