Tuesday June 1st – 7pm-9pm AEST
AND a repeat workshop on
Wednesday June 2nd – 7pm-9pm AEST
To be a great speaker, an orator that’s proud,
One needs to focus on more than your speech;
There are vital aspects beyond being loud,
So join us, we’re here to teach!
In our ever-changing world, strong science communication has never been more important.
In Let’s Torque‘s second workshop of 2021, meet us and our brilliant guest SciComm presenter Michael Wheeler (from ACU & the University of Melbourne) at the East Melbourne Library to discover the vital non-verbal aspects of SciComm; Design Principles, Stance, Gesture and more!
Come join us on June 1st or June 2nd at 7pm to help round out your presenting skills in new and accessible physical and visual aspects! In this workshop, we will show you how learning visual design principles and aspects of giving a physically powerful presence will elevate your speech. Here are our FB events for the two workshop evening repeats you could book.
Bookings for the event are $5 to cover costs, and you can find our booking system here! We look forward to seeing your marvellous molecules there :)
