Poster Presentation Success

Preparing a poster presentation offers a great opportunity to connect with potential collaborators and employers. The key is to optimize your time before, during and after the session, and really take advantage of all the eyeballs on your poster to develop strong networking alliances and job leads. In this workshop, we will discuss the elements of a successful poster and, even more importantly, how to deliver a meaningful, effective poster presentation. Discover how to follow up and leverage the connections you make in order to develop partnerships and utilize social media to build buzz around you and your research endeavors.
