Competitive Presentations (online edition): Now that we all need to work online, how do we make our presentations more effective? Ed Thomas has adapted his 2019 seminar on competitive presentation practices to deal with online meetings. Please join in to review basic rules of narration, framing, complexity and visual communications. The 60-minute session will provide ample opportunities for questions and answers.

Presenter: Edward Thomas is the Associate Director of External Relations at the McDonald Institute. He leads partnerships, communications and business development within the Institute, the broader astroparticle physics community, academia, government, business, NGOs and the Canadian public. He has more than 20 years of experience in technology development, research administration, innovation support and business journalism.
