Research pitching skills have become increasingly important for PhD students. You will be called on to pitch your research at conferences, in seminars and for various competitions - but what what is pitching and how can you get good at it? The word ‘pitching’ can have bad connotations. Some see it as a commodification of research and researchers, but in this workshop we will reframe it as a useful way of thinking about the impact of your research for the community. In this workshop we will learn what a good pitch is (and isn’t) and how to build a compelling one. This workshop is designed specifically for candidates who are doing the Three Minute Thesis or just to help you make more impactful conference presentations.
This workshop will be presented by Associate Professor Inger Mewburn, Director of Research Training, ANU (aka the Thesis Whisperer). Please bring with you paper and pens. This is a repeat of the sesison "Visualise your Thesis" offered on 30 May 2018.
100% of participants survyed in 2018 would recommend this presentation to their peers. Participants said:
"The workshop was very informative and encouraged us to think outside of the comfort zone of the data and details of our PhD. The workshop taught many skills that I will use in the future to showcase my PhD at conferences and around the school/university."
"It's a great way to get a handle on messaging your research."
