Professional Presentations at Conferences and in the Academic World

Dr. Carrie B. Dohe


This seminar focuses on how scholars can best convey the value and significance of their work through oral communication, emphasizing not only typical structures of thought and expressions in English, but also an audience’s expectations. The focus of the seminar is on the formal conference panel presentation and the question-and-answer session, and includes sections on the presentation structure, attention-getting openers, visual aids and linguistic cues for the audience (signposting language); we also discuss and practice networking, small talk, the elevator speech, and introduction speeches.

Participants will hold individual presentations (8-10 minutes, to prepare beforehand), followed by a short question-and-answer session. Afterwards, each presenter will receive ample feedback from the entire group on all aspects of the presentation.


Dr. Carrie B. Dohe was born and raised in the Rocky Mountain state of Colorado in the United States. At San Francisco State University, she studied Gender Studies and Art. Thereafter she worked for various non-profit organizations, learning about grantmaking, donor services, office management, social services, and human resources. She received her Ph.D. in the History of Religions from the University of Chicago. She has gained many years' experience in teaching English, general and busi-ness English in private schools for several years, then privately for international doctoral students and professors at the University of Chicago.
