Summary: The ability to deliver effective and engaging oral 
presentations is a critical skill for scientists in all disciplines. 
Unfortunately, despite the importance of clear communication, too many 
presentations at conferences and workshops are confusing, abstract and 
boring. In this seminar, Scott St. George (University of Minnesota) and 
Andy Frassetto (Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology) will 
share a few tips that could make your professional presentations just a 
little bit better. In less than 30 minutes, Scott and Andy will talk 
strategies for presentation planning, discuss the differences between a 
good and bad visual aid, and point you towards a set of outstanding 
online resources. Become a presentation superstar!

You may contact Andy Frassetto (andyf at iris.edu) with any inquiries.
