Sketch Talks - Networking or Non-Scientific Audience Presentations
For IGB faculty presenting at networking events or other relationship-building opportunities with alumni, donors, or industry leaders, we have prepared the following guidelines designed to maximize your impact with these audiences. We have developed an approach called a “sketch talk,” a one slide presentation aimed at individuals who have no scientific training or background, that will deliver a clear takeaway through the use of a compelling image and a narrative content structure. Visit our Sketch Talk page for a step-by-step guide.
