PhDs: Communication & Personal Impact (1:1 Coaching Online)

Mon 20 Jun 2022


Do you get the results you want from your communication with others at work? Are you able to talk with confidence in meetings and interviews? Do you have a high level of impact when speaking in public?

This individually focused and completely confidential one-to-one coaching session will help you refine your presentation skills, help you speak more confidently as an emerging leader in your research field, and develop new approaches to your communication in a wide range of professional situations.

Constructive feedback will give you insight into your speaking style, how you come across to others, and how well your ideas are communicated. Coaching will focus on your individual requirements ranging from practical points about elocution and vocal projection, to holding the attention of a room, to structuring a compelling presentation.

Target audience

PhD students (All Schools)

  • These coaching sessions focus on presentation and communication
  • We are unable to offer support for those seeking voice and pronunciation training for non-native English speakers. Please visit the Language Centre for further information and support.

At the beginning of your one-to-one session, you will be asked to give a short presentation (or excerpt thereof). If you are working on something specific which you would like to practise (e.g. a lecture, paper, talk). If you don’t have anything particular to present, then please come prepared to talk for 2-3 minutes about yourself and your work.

Each meeting will last for up to 60 minutes and, given the present circumstances relating to Covid-19, will be conducted online using Teams.
