IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Thursday 5th - Friday 6th November 2020

Location: Small Conference Room, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Ruth Willmott

Description: Knowing how to design a well-structured, visually attractive poster is a must for every researcher. However, due to insufficient know-how and inexperience, you may fail to get your message across and also not present your poster optimally.

To overcome these problems, the Designing and Presenting Posters Workshop focuses on the key dos and don’ts of strong poster design using your own poster as material. In addition, you will be coached on how to effectively make your key points and convey your message as well as on how to make the best impression on interested parties. This workshop will, therefore, enable you not only to design and present a poster competently but also to represent yourself and your Institute more professionally.
The Designing and Presenting Posters Workshop is ideal for early-stage research scientists with no or little poster designing and presenting experience.

Location: Large Conference Room, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry (link is external)

Trainer: Sabine Walter & Greta Wonneberger

Description: Quite commonly it is not the person who works hard or has exceptional grades who gets ahead professionally; rather, it is the person who markets themselves the best. This is not only a frustrating situation for the deserving employee, but is also detrimental to the company and the organization as top talent is overlooked.

At the end of this workshop, you will know your strengths and talents and consider them resources. You will be able to clearly communicate your goals. You will stand by what you say and will be able to convey your goals and opinions convincingly. You will have a clearer plan for your professional future and understand how to use  networking to further your goals.
