Abstract
Can you present your work at a conference or in a meeting in an easy yet professional way? Does your presentation help you keep track of time and make sure you cover everything you mean to say?

This workshop will teach you how to improve the style of your presentations. It will show you how to use fonts and colors to your advantage, ways to organize your presentation, and do’s and don'ts for successful presentations. We’ll critique slides together as a group and discuss our own best practices.
