Leave feeling confident about presenting your research even when the results are not what sponsors wanted

Are you worried about presenting your research findings when you know the results you got are not what the sponsors were hoping for?

Does this keep you up at night, worrying about their reaction?

Come to this session and find out:
  • How to present your results in a way that will make your sponsors feel grateful despite your findings not being what they expected/wanted
  • How to use this as an opportunity to secure more funding
  • The recipe for presenting research successfully every time

“Adelina showed me a completely new way how I could present the results I was worried about. I presented these to the sponsors, had a positive response from them and now we’re even looking at getting more funding! I now feel more confident about presenting my research regardless of the results!” S.M, Post Doc Research Associate, Cambridge University

What is different about this workshop? Adelina will perform a live demonstration of a real post doc research with unwanted results from a Cambridge University researcher or a member of the audience. You will experience the process of building and see a live demonstration of this sort of presentation – you will not be talked at for one hour on how to do it – you will live it.

Who is the speaker? Adelina Chalmers trains academic staff at Cranfield University on presenting research and she works with Cambridge University’s start-up arm Cambridge Enterprise as their pitching consultant for the Latin American business development programmes. In previous roles, she commissioned research and presented to industry at academic and international conferences. She won numerous impromptu speaking competitions and speaks 5 languages.
