Workshop "How to prepare your unprepared speech"
Making contributions in meetings, answering questions after presentations or lectures, and discussing a project with colleagues are the situations in which we have to give short talks. The problem is that there we have virtually no time to prepare, let alone rehearse what we are going to say, which is likely to prove challenging, especially in a foreign language. At the workshop, we will discuss recommendations for giving short unprepared talks and strategies that help quickly get together and present our ideas. Then we will practice, practice, and practice!
