Workshop: Pitching – how to be convincing!
Learn how to frame and phrase your research – and to pitch it in the most attractive way, understandable to most people.
The purpose of the workshop is to help PhD students and researchers present their ideas to interested people outside one’s own special field of interest. The point of learning the art of Pitching, is beyond matters of ‘presentation technique’. When we present something we are very familiar with, to people who already have basic understanding of what the idea is about, it is relatively easy. However, presenting an idea to someone who might not have the insights that you do, is a skill that can be and usually should be practised more than once. Pitching is the art form of convincing people one has never met before, into seeing why an idea is a good idea. The term ‘Pitching’ is linked to concepts of entrepreneurship and selling, but is equally applicable in regular jobs and more diverse situations in everyday lives.
The workshop consists of general introductions to what good pitches contain and what things to avoid, followed by practising the skill.
