Interview with Julia Carter
Have you been sitting in boring presentations that made you start reading your emails?
Have you been listening to someone, wondering if this is for me?
Have you been getting away from a presentation and thinking 2 hours later: “what was this about?”
You’re surely don’t want your audience to feel this way, when you’re presenting yourself. You can’t be an effective statisticians without good presentation skills from my perspective. You will always need to present results, defend designs, or explain data.
Todays episode will give you insights into 7 mistakes of presentations. And honestly, I see at least one of them in nearly every presentation and I struggle with them as well – just listen to this episode and you’ll have a live example 😊.
The 7 mistakes Julia and I talk about are:
- Messing up the logistics (technical or room set-up)
- Lack of clarity on desired outcome
- Just focusing on the logical arguments
- Being boring
- Ignoring the audience
- Having a false start
- Ending lamely
Listen to this episode and learn how to avoid them. Also, Julia has a nice gift at the end, thus stay to the end of the episode to learn about it.
