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

Thu 4 Mar 2021


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

Postdoctoral Researchers/Research Staff

  • Please note that PhD students are not eligible for this course. Please visit the Researcher Development for PhD one-to-one bookable sessions.

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.

  • This appointment will be conducted online via Teams
  • The trainer will call you at the designated appointment time
  • Please ensure you are on time

Further joining details will be contained in your booking confirmation email, please ensure you read these and carry out the pre-requisite instructions prior to your appointment.

Demand for one-to-one support is higher than usual. We therefore ask that you give at least 24 hour notice of cancellation, where possible, so that your place can be given to a student on the waiting list. You will be contacted if you fail to attend the session, without notice of cancellation.
