Conference Presentations 2020

This was the year of teleconferencing. Suddenly we were all thrust into a world where zoom (or teams or skype or facetime) was the app mediating our connection to both our professional and personal worlds. 

This was also the year where I, like many others, learnt to deliver a conference presentation virtually rather than standing at the front of a room of people. People whose bodies offered clues and cues to assist us in tailoring our communication to the audience. I think everyone found presenting while sitting at our desk at home, often talking to a series of black squares with small names in the top corner, a less than desirable experience. Nevertheless, a whole new skillset awaits and, by the last of my five presentations this year, I felt more noticeably more confident and comfortable. Below is a summary of presentations I've delivered this year with links to recordings where available.
