Communication is vital to effective public involvement in research, for both researchers and public contributors.
The NIHR’s public involvement standards identify communication as one of six areas key to improving the quality and consistency of public involvement in research.
Public speaking is an important part of effective communication. However, it is an activity that many people find challenging.
This 90-minute short course aims to:
Identify the issues and fears associated with oral presentations and public speaking
Review the authentic approach and strategies that may help manage a fear of public speaking
Explore the importance of non-verbal techniques
Offer effective practice ideas
Review the benefits of public speaking as a transferrable life skill
