Make an Impact! Networking and Communication Skills for Academics

Graduiertenakademie + Graduiertenschulen Graduiertenakademie

How can I make an impact in professional contexts such as small-talk situations at conferences?
What can help me in situations where I face an international crowd and how can I connect to
an interdisciplinary audience? The workshop "Make an Impact!" offers the opportunity to
enhance overall effective communication (verbal and non-verbal) in order to improve
networking and self-promotion opportunities.
Throughout the workshop, participants will be guided through interactive exercises to improve
their body language, as well as focus on the quality of their language content. The aim is to
develop strategies to make a lasting and positive impact on groups, colleagues, and significant
contact persons (networking). Trainer input will provide the opportunity to gain new insights in
effective communication and learn how to present themselves more effectively and to make the
best impression and strongest impact.

• Self-marketing: effectively promoting oneself (verbal business cards)
• Spontaneous small talk: informal chatting with a purpose
• Developing awareness skills
• Concise and effective introductions: make an impact!
• Body language focus
