Research Communication Coaching

We offer individual and group coaching sessions for PhD students and Postdocs to rehearse upcoming presentations or talks for audiences outside your field (e.g. fellowship, conference presentation, etc.). In this session, we will listen to your presentation, ask questions, and if needed, give you suggestions about how to make things clearer. Ideally, the session would take place at least one week before the presentation day in order to allow you time to implement the coaching feedback. Students who have taken advantage of this opportunity have reported winning fellowships and competitions. If you would like to schedule a presentation coaching session, please contact Marlit Hayslett at
