myPostdoc Monthly: Help Your Data Speak for Themselves

As scientists, we like to think that our data “speak for themselves.” That is, the reader or viewer need only see our results to believe them and accept our conclusions. Whether talking about research or advocacy, we can undercut our message when we present in an unconvincing manner. Speaking to high-ranking or experienced audiences can feel particularly risky. This webinar will explore some tools to prevent you from undermining your own effectiveness.

As scientists, we like to think that our data “speak for themselves.” That is, the reader or viewer need only see our results to believe them and accept our conclusions. Whether talking about research or advocacy, we can undercut our message when we present in an unconvincing manner. Speaking to high-ranking or experienced audiences can feel particularly risky. This webinar will explore some tools to prevent you from undermining your own effectiveness. When you maximize your credibility, you leave your audience confident that your conclusions are sound.

 

Participants will:
  • Learn the characteristics that undermine their effectiveness as a speaker
  • Understand the aural and visual aspects of a commanding presence
  • Apply lessons from business to communicating about science

Donna L. Vogel, M.D., Ph.D., is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College, and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. In 1980 she came to the National Institutes of Health as a clinical fellow and postdoc, conducting clinical and basic research relating to infertility and reproductive medicine. She moved to the extramural program in 1987 to manage the Reproductive Medicine grant portfolio, and worked as a program director for 13 years. As training officer for her branch, she handled training and career development activities, and minority/disability issues, and realized this was the part of the job she loved the most. During that time, she also worked closely with the Office of Research on Women’s Health. In 2001, Vogel became the first director of the Fellowship Office at the National Cancer Institute. She left federal service in 2005 to join the Ellison Medical Foundation as its deputy director. From 2007 to 2015, she was director of the Professional Development Office at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, providing training and education for students, fellows and early-career faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing. She retired as director in 2015, now providing expertise as needed as a part-time training specialist. She continues to speak nationally on professional skill-building and career development. Vogel has been active with professional organizations, including serving as president of the the American Society of Andrology in 2012-13, and is the 2016 recipient of its Distinguished Service Award. She has organized many workshops, published research and administrative papers and book chapters, and has received awards from National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the U.S. Public Health Service, professional societies, and community groups. She is also a four-day Jeopardy! winner and 2009 Tournament of Champions semifinalist.
