Giving Great Presentations

Crystal Clear Content – Proper Slides – Convincing Performance both on-site & online

2-days intense-training, online or on-site

For up to 10 leaders, owners, entrepreneurs, and freelancers of any sector, in English or German

This seminar will usually focus BOTH on presenting in physical AND in online contexts. If your institution prefers, we can focus on only one of the two scenarios.

We also offer this content as a series of four webinars (see there).

Your Benefit

As a leader you will frequently have to convince your counterpart about specific issues, often in form of a presentation. It is essential to perform excellently within the few minutes given. Be it in front of your team, of your superiors, your clients, project partners, or potential customers.

Based on your performance your audience will decide whether they consider you trustworthy and competent, and whether they can and want to further follow you. Besides clarity of content and relevance of topic, it is your body language and voice as well as the quality of your slides that matter.

In this seminar you will train your skills in the three core areas of convincing scientific talks – in a safe environment:

1. Prepare Clear Content

Many scientific presentations suffer from too little clarity and too much content. The result is a lecturer running through the slides, losing the audience at the very beginning. You should instead learn to deliver a clear presentation by setting dis-tinct goals and finding vivid examples that make your talk memorable.

2. Design Proper Slides

Today's leading standard for visualization in scientific presentations is Power-Point: a powerful tool, however, often poorly used. Lecturers frequently try to remind themselves what they wanted to say by reading their own bullets – thereby facing the projection screen instead of their audience. With overfilled, graphically cluttered, visually incoherent slides they try to support their speech. Do better!

3. Be Convincing on Stage

With your body language and spoken word stands or falls your talk. Aside valuable content you must be able to deliver it in a convincing way that motivates your audience to follow you. Many great researchers miss this chance and obligation. You will give an example of your talk, receive feedback, learn from a video recording of it, and you will know how to do better, if necessary.


  • You know about the essentials of all three areas
  • You receive individual feedback on your talks
  • You can try out new behavior – in a safe environment
  • You know what you can further improve in future – and how to do so


  • Prepare clear content: audience focus, take home message, etc.
  • How to start and end well
  • Telling a vivid story: Creating Brain Cinema
  • The Six Golden Rules of Slide Design (How many words? How many slides? What background and fonts? …)
  • PowerPoint tech tips (slide masters, Smart Art, etc. No full introduction)
  • Body language: where to put your hands – and other questions
  • Answers to your questions


Trainer input, practical exercises, participants’ presentations, break out sessions, small group work, and discussion. Each participant will conduct a short 3-5 minutes’ presentation twice (an excerpt of a larger one), receive feedback by peers and trainer and learn from a video recording. If conducted online: The presentation will be done standing or sitting in front of the computer, the slides being in front of the presenter on the computer screen, not behind him/her projected at a wall. This procedure has been proven working very well to create high quality feedback even in this online training scenario.


Do you want to learn a practical and applicable method that makes grow your scientific presentations? If yes, this is your course.

I wanted to join this course because, in general, I think scientist have problems to make clear and convincing scientific presentations, and this is something that we need to work.
He is giving you a lot of applicable tips and techniques that will make your presentations grow, because scientific presentations don’t need to be boring. My expectations were fully covered.
