Lura Dolas (Senior Continuing Lecturer Emerita and former head of the UC Berkeley Acting Program) conducts a two-session in-person workshop to help graduate students deliver job talks and professional presentations clearly, confidently, and persuasively.

The workshops offer techniques for neutralizing stage fright, identifying naturally expressive behavior, achieving personal connection in virtual presentations, and replacing flat jargon with engaging language. Exercises to expand vocal range and improve eye contact and use of gesture will enhance both live and virtual audience rapport. These workshops provide a safe, constructive environment to promote individual participation.

In the first meeting, participants are given a series of exercises to enhance presentation of self and material. In the second, participants may present a short sample of a job talk or professional presentation for individual coaching.
