Performance: The Art of Professional Presentation

15 November, 2016, 7:45 am - 9:30 pm


Ingenuity KnowledgeXchange Breakfast Event

There is a need, in a business context, to finesse your public voice and performance – not just in terms of public speaking (although that is part of it), but in all business settings. We know from speaking to our network that many of you have to communicate and “perform” to a variety of different audiences to deliver your business objectives, for example, with customers, colleagues/peers, employees, suppliers and collaborators. With this in mind we have drawn on University expertise to offer a different perspective and advice to help you in your business interactions and presentation.

This will be the final event in our 2016 programme of Ingenuity breakfast events. Join us for networking, a free breakfast and the opportunity to learn something new.

The programme

07:45 – 08:10       Registration, breakfast and networking
08:10 – 08:15       Welcome and introductions
08:10 – 09:00       Keynote
09:00 – 09:10       Q&A
09:10 – 09:30       The Shop Window
09:30…                  Networking – for those that want to stay on

The Shop Window

The Shop Window is your chance to take the floor to make a brief presentation to the room about something you are looking for help with.

From the University? If you have a business-facing project or want to work with local small and medium-sized businesses as part of your research, this is your opportunity to make contact with business owners. Our network members are already interested in what happens at the University and may be interested in participating with your initiative.

From a business? Sorry, but the Shop Window isn’t the time for a “60 second pitch presentation”. Feedback from our network members tells us that our businesses want something different from Ingenuity. But it is your opportunity to do some research of your own: request volunteers for new product or service trials, ask if anyone has any recommendations for difficult-to-find suppliers, or simply share some news that the audience might not find out about otherwise.

If you would like to participate in the Shop Window just drop us a line.
