TED talks training sessions at the Network Institute

The Network Institute is organizing TED Talk training sessions in May in which participants will learn how to make their message more accessible and convincing when speaking in public. The presentation skills you will gain are immediately useful for several purposes, from chairing a meeting to giving any public or specialized talk, etc. It will contribute to the quality of your outreach potential and also in your personal research contexts.

TEDtalks may seem effortless and smooth if one learns how to deliver a proper speech. When approached with the necessary training, TEDtalks can offer an accessible yet thorough platform for broadcasting diverse and high-quality research.

The training is free of charge and it is open to all members of:

  • Computer Science department
  • Communication Science department
  • Organization Sciences department
  • Language, Literature, and Communication department
  • KIN
  • Athena Institute

The training involves one masterclass of 2,5 hours in the skills of storytelling and the construction of an inviting and exciting talk in a group. The training will take place live and can also be tailored to address online presentations skills. The masterclass will take place in a group of five people.

The training is offered by Geerteke van Lierop, actress, writer, and presentation coach who trains TEDtalk speakers, and also staff at various Faculties at the VU.
