2018 Summer School Program

Focus:          Communication and Presentation skills
Methods:    Presentation skills, Flow, Science (neuroscience, embodiment), storytelling, resilience training, applied improvisation
There is hardly any better tool than applied improvisation to improve your presentation skills. In presentation-oriented and agile exercises the group is taught how to work autonomously, goal-oriented and experience flow states. Each participant increases their awareness toward their presentation style, their emotional state and their focus on the story of the presentation.
You will learn to avoid communication pitfalls and to deliver each message more clearly. The communication and presentation exercises are based on scientific findings, which are discussed during the workshop. It is my goal to deliver a system that helps you to present your work more effectively in the future.
Benefit: Improved communication, presentation skills, increased productivity, awareness of individual communication strategies and conflict management.
