3MT Communicating to a Non-specialist Audience
Friday, Oct. 26, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
6 Norton Hall
Attend this workshop to learn how to effectively communicate the importance and potential impact of your research in just three minutes to non-experts. For success in today’s fast-paced world, the ability to briefly describe your research and its purpose is crucial. Jordan Walbesser, In-House Counsel at Mattel, Inc., will outline tips and strategies for communicating to non-specialists through casual conversation, at a professional conference or, in a pitch competition. Mr. Walbesser will present an invaluable perspective based on his experience as a judge for Buffalo’s popular 43 North pitch competition. Finalists from last year’s UB 3MT competition will share practices used to target and refine their pitches for non-specialist audiences. All graduate students are welcome to participate in this session regardless of eligibility or intent to enter the competition.
