Distilling information about yourself, your work, or your research into a short presentation can be difficult. There are many complexities in undertaking our work roles or research projects in the gerontology/geriatric context, even more so in an Asia-Oceania region and context.
Storytelling is a skill. Why do you do the work you do? What drives you to work and study in this area? This session aims to give you the skills and the confidence to present yourself or your work in a brief 3-minute engaging conversation. You will learn to unpack the crucial elements of your work/project, that is, what REALLY matters to other people and WHY you are undertaking the work/project.
The speakers will share their expertise, including practical tips. Participants will work in pairs to develop and practice their ‘elevator pitch’. Constructive feedback will be provided by the speakers and other supporters.
This is an opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers across the Asia-Oceania region on their experiences of setting up and leading networks and groups for students and early career scholars in gerontology/geriatrics research and clinical work. You will hear from early/mid-career researchers as well as post-graduate and under-graduate representatives.
Developing and maintaining relationships across countries and cultural groups can be challenging. Common interest areas or discipline specific groups can be a good starting point. There will be a Q&A session at the end where other students and early/mid-career researchers can ask questions and advise on setting up such networks and groups in other countries.
Are you interested in seeking a mentor?
This is a popular session whereby a panel of ‘stars’ kindly give up some of their time to share their experiences with students and early career scholars – this year the topic is ‘mentorship’.
Each ‘star’ will have 5 minutes to share their opinion of what works (and doesn’t work) in the mentor/mentee relationship. Then it’s time for you to ask questions of them. The ‘stars’ will be announced soon and will come from various countries across our Asia-Oceania region.
The lunch event will be catered and places are limited. Please register here. A waiting list will be created once places are full. We look forward to seeing you there!
