In today's interdisciplinary world, you no longer have the luxury of communicating only with people in your field. You also need to make your research fascinating to broader audiences, such as policymakers, business partners, investors, and corporate partners. Doing so effectively can help you engage with key decision-makers, distinguish yourself professionally, and even attract funding opportunities.  

In this interactive workshop, Matt Vassar of the Technical Communication Program, instructor for the popular ENGR 103/203 Public Speaking course, will guide you through presentation techniques designed to spark interest in your research by making it fascinating to both expert and non-expert audiences alike.
