This will be the fifth Early Career Professional Session at an ICS annual meeting and we are pleased to announce that Marcus Drake will be providing the keynote lecture.
The lecture, entitled "Dealing with questions after a presentation" will focus on one of the trickier aspects of public speaking. Questions can take many forms, and sometimes can seem to be a minefield. The skill is to provide a succinct and relevant answer, remaining respectful and calm. Yes, it can be done!
We prepare a relaxed session with a combination of lectures and presentations which we think will be of great interest to those just starting their careers. Young ICS delegates can present their abstract in a mock podium style session where a group of expert panellists will provide invaluable, one to one feedback on presentation skills, slides and scientific content. The review panel will be made up of key ICS members. This year’s experts are:
NEW AWARD- Best early career presenter
The ICS Board of Trustees and Education Committee are pleased to announce a new award for ICS 2017.
