Dr. Jean-Iuc Doumont – Communication Talk – Wed, April 8, 2015

Please join us for two of Dr. Jean-luc Doumont’s world-famous talks on communication on Wednesday, April 8, 2015.  One on the UC San Diego campus and the other on TSRI’s campus.

The Three Laws of Communication

One of the core abilities for a researcher pursuing any career path, is effective communication.  Useful as each of them can be, a large body of tips and tricks is impossible to remember, at least in a practical, usable way, unless it is structured into a balanced, meaningful hierarchy. To provide you with an opportunity to better communicate, we have invited the immensely popular speaker Jean-luc Doumont to UC San Diego on April 8.  This talk proposes and illustrates three simple yet solid ideas that lead to more effective communication and that underpin every other guideline: easy to remember, readily applicable, and always relevant—in short, valuable for the rest of your life. Join us for this workshop and invite your friends, colleagues, labmates, students and faculty too!

Time: 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Location: UC San Diego Medical Education & Telemedicine (MET) Building, lower auditorium

Persuading Others

Being able to persuade others is a critical skill for any career. We must convince an employer to hire us, persuade our boss to let us start a project, or get our coworkers to help us out. This talk offers a rational approach to persuasion: it covers how to use personal or organizational power, deploy tactics on four different planes, and harness basic social influences so as to have other people accede more easily to our requests.

Time: 3:00-5:00 pm

Location: The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) – Keck Amphitheater, Beckman Building
