Having the ability to speak confidently; engage the audience; make a clear, well-argued case; and handle any tricky situations, is rarely a natural talent, and standing before an inquisitive audience or board can be a stressful experience. Scientists Must Speak: Bringing Presentations to Life helps readers do just that. The book addresses such topics as using visual aids, voice and body language, adapting material, question and answer sessions, and more. Written by authors with many years' experience of teaching presentation techniques, this engaging text will help readers make the best of their presentations and remove some of the fear that makes them a daunting prospect.
