Professional Development Talk: Getting the Message Across

Date and Location

Apr 10, 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Corwin Pavilion, UCSB

Speaker

Jean-luc Doumont

Abstract

No matter the medium—a presentation, a document, a graph, a poster, a curriculum vitae, or other still—communication boils down to one question: do you get your message across? True to Jean-luc’s quest for the essentials, this lecture takes a transversal view at the traditional forms of communication to discuss how to convey a message verbally and nonverbally, and how to organize messages into a story—in any medium.

Bio: An engineer (Louvain) and PhD in applied physics (Stanford), Jean-luc Doumont is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, maps, and theorems, his book about “effective communication for rational minds.” For additional information, visit www.principiae.be.
