You will learn to analyse the rhetorical situation and the recipient you want to influence and become aware of how nonverbal communication affects your message. Seasoned with tips and tricks from the acting profession.

A PhD candidate will benefit greatly if they can communicate their research and personal strengths effectively both at conferences, at their defence, at networking events and when searching for a career after the PhD.
