Mr. Edwin Song – the speaker of the program has 30 years of experience working in many countries such as China, Hong Kong and Singapore as a co-founder of a startup company, a marketing expert, a university lecturer, academic and business coach and data science expert.
The speaker guided students on how to make an impression when presenting without worrying about many sources of information saying that this can be replaced by artificial intelligence. Accordingly, experts focus on analyzing “Nonverbal” factors, expressed by facial emotions, body movements, eye interactions, smiles, hand openness, energy sources,… All are analyzed. Illustrated in detail and vividly with interesting videos.
Next, UEFers practiced introducing themselves in a hypothetical context at a welcoming party for new students at a university with an AI system from the speaker. This application evaluates your performance specifically through the criteria of face, content, voice and body.
Through that, the speaker helps students see the importance and power of body language, voice and facial expressions in conveying confidence, reliability, fluency and energy. Through experiential exercises, UEFers better understand their nonverbal communication habits and learn how to make conscious adjustments for maximum impact.
Presentation is an indispensable skill in study and work. This is one of the skills that the School focuses on developing for students through subjects, competitions, etc. Creating an impression in a presentation in the age of technology becomes even more important. When people can access all information using the Internet, the workshop promptly provided necessary and useful knowledge to students to effectively promote this skill.
