Do you struggle to develop presentations?
Do you start preparing a talk by opening up powerpoint or keynote?
Do you regularly kill your audience with text and bullet points?
Do you read from your slides?
Are you unsure how you come across on stage?
In case you answered yes to any of the above this course is for you!
We’ve all experienced how painfully boring and inefficient medical talks can be. How often do you leave departmental teaching session or a conference talk and feel genuinely the wiser or more inspired? Not the majority, right? Try to imagine the immense amount of hours going into preparing these presentations by noted researchers and clinicians and the time spend by audiences at these talks. It’s mind boggling that we allow ourselves to waste so much effort with so little gain. Presentation skills haven’t received more emphasis in medical training when it’s what most of us find we do so badly so often.
Well, no more.
Building on the success of a similar workshop in 2017, we’ve been able to persuade Ross Fisher to head yet another one day course on presentation skills. Ross is a distinguished consultant paediatric surgeon in the UK, but internationally he is probably more well known for his expertise and passion on the subject of presentations. He has deveoped the “p cubed” framework. He’s given brilliant talks at TEDx and at SMACC and has passed on his presentation wizardry in numerous courses around the world. This truly is a masterclass.
Find out much more about Ross on the faculty page.
This course will be a pretty intense full day of sessions where tools and concepts are introduced and rehearsed in small groups to make it immediately applicable to your learning needs. It will be very interactive and offer a lot of feedback you can use. Find the preliminary programme here.
The scanFOAM team believes strongly in #FOAMed and the power of social in learning, so we aim to get everybody connected on social media before the course and hope you’ll wanna join us for dinner and drinks after the course before you head on home.
We look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen!
