Event Title

Mini 05: Best Practices for Turning Your Research into a Relevant and Engaging Conference Presentation

Presenter Information

Dr. Laura M. Galloway, Assistant Professor, Business and Professional Studies

Description

Presenting at conferences can be a daunting task- finding a conference to present, designing an attractive proposal, creating a relevant and engaging presentation and planning your travel are all difficult steps of the conference presentation process. Although research can take months or years to move from idea generation and design to data collection, analysis, and writing up the results, most oral presentations at conferences take only about 15-25 minutes. How does one go about cramming all of one's hard work into such a brief time allotment? Deciding what information to include in an oral presentation and how to organize that information can often be more stressful than actually giving the presentation. The goal of this presentation is to provide 'best practice' advice for turning your research into a relevant and engaging conference presentation.
