Communication and Presentation Skills

25 and 26 March 2013, UPTEC Polo das Indústrias Criativas, Praça Coronel Pacheco, 2 (Porto)


In a competitive context, communicating knowledge or promoting ideas, in situations private or public, is fundamental and decisive.

To communicate in a truly effective and comfortable way means not only structuring your ideas clearly but also mastering your body and voice when presenting them to others.

This workshop will offer you efficient tools both for the construction of your projects and for the improvement of your natural skills of posture and eloquence, in order to make your ideas clear and captivating for a specific audience.

The programme is divided in four subsequent parts:

1. From idea to project – the Business Model Canvas as a tool to support the structuring of ideas and the definition of goals

2. Opportunities and Threats – debate about the importance of communication and the transparency of the message to achieve the desired goals: Tuizzi’s case study

3. Body Talking – exploring the body and voice as your natural instruments inherent to the communication process

4. Pitch – simulating a pitch situation, where participants will present their ideas/ projects to a group of (fake) evaluators, applying the skills acquired earlier during the workshop.
