Conquering Presentation Anxiety: Improv for Scientists

Committee Meetings! Conference Presentations! Poster Sessions! Oh My!

As the famous 19th century scientist Louis Pasteur said, “Fortune favors the prepared mind.” Join us for a Communication Workshop designed to prepare you for novel situations, unpredictable people, and “unscripted” circumstances. In this interactive, introductory workshop, The Revival Theater will facilitate a series of improv-based exercises taught by Micah Philbrook, designed to help you:

  • Improve presentation skills
  • Enhance teamwork and collaboration
  • Address anxiety

Please wear comfortable clothes and be prepared for roughly 2 hrs. of on-your-feet exercises. Everyone will have a chance to participate and are encouraged to take risks, embrace mistakes, and learn from their experiences in a supportive environment.  This workshop requires no previous experience. All you need to bring is an open mind!

Course Capacity: 15
Course Fee: $10
