Before booking a workshop, please make sure that you can attend for the entire duration and save the dates. When participants do not show up or cancel on a very short notice, other interested parties are denied a chance to participate. 



For doctoral candidates of all disciplines.



The activity-based workshop, led by a theatre professional, helps academics to develop spontaneous communication skills in professional contexts such as interviews, presentations as well as small-talk situations (networking). Furthermore, the workshop offers the opportunity to enhance overall effective communication (verbal and non-verbal). Trainer input will provide the opportunity to gain new insights in effective communication and learn how to present yourself more effectively and to make the best impression and strongest impact.



Throughout the workshop, participants will be guided through interactive exercises to improve their body language, as well as focus on the quality of their language content and structure of their ideas. Partner and small group work offers dynamic interaction and valuable, individual feedback.

  • Effectively promoting oneself (verbal business cards)
  • Spontaneous small talk: informal chatting with a purpose
  • Strategies for effective communication
  • Awareness of body-language (non-verbal communication)
  • Concise and effective introductions: make an impact!


If there are free spots, we also allow postdocs to participate.
