Description: Ever look out into the audience during your presentation and notice that everyone is busy tapping away on their BlackBerrys? How do you capture and hold your audience’s attention? What should be on your slides, how much text, which font, and what about illustrations? NIH has important information to share with the world—come to this forum to learn how to dazzle your audience with any topic, from scientific data to administrative policy. You are an expert in your field—now be an expert communicator! And don’t miss an improvisational theater demonstration designed to improve your communication skills, led by actor Alan Alda.
