Self-presentation is the key

Participants of the workshop "Self presentation, Small Talk & Networking" organized by European University Viadrina at IHP.

Female scientists learned in an interactive workshop at IHP how to become more successful in their career

At the end of September female scientists gained comprehensive qualifications on self-presentation during a workshop which was organized in corporation with the European University Viadrina´s “Mentoring- and coaching program for PhD-candidates, post-doctoral-scientists and junior professors”.

At conferences it is not only necessary to present our scientific work in a good light. At the same way important is how we pitch ourself to get in contact with others and to network. In an interactive two-day-session Dr. Karin Bodewits and Peter Kronenberg, both scientists, teached the participants. They skilled them in self-presentation and -promotion in the scientific environment. But also how to communicate successful in a research context and how to use the body language in an effective way. “It was a really good experience and I learned a lot how to behave and to communicate. I think at my next conference I will be more self-confident.” said Viktoria Schlykow, PhD-student at IHP.

The building and the infrastructure of the IHP were funded by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union, funds of the Federal Government and also funds of the Federal State of Brandenburg.
