Delivering Effective Conference Presentations: A Librarian’s Guide Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, February 5, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Presenting at a conference can be both a major professional opportunity and a major personal challenge. Whether you are sharing a successful project, exciting research, or you’ve been tasked with teaching your peers about a new aspect of library work, there’s a lot of preparation that goes into a successful presentation. 

In this workshop, Marci Cohen, a public services librarian and experienced presenter, shows how to engage and inform your audience while avoiding common pitfalls. Cohen teaches how to tailor the content to the audience and the setting, eliminate distractions, and how to effectively use—but not over-use—technology. You’ll learn about time management and simple steps you can take to help things go smoothly, whether you are presenting on your own or as part of a larger panel.

This workshop is appropriate for anyone who has yet to give their first conference presentation or who wants to improve their skills at this.

After attending this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Tailor their conference presentation content to the specific audience and setting
  • Effectively use technology to enhance rather than distract from their presentation
  • Make small changes to their preparation and presentation techniques that add up to big improvements in impact
