With this workshop, we continue our successful previous AOM PDW and draw attention to the importance of presenting academic research in the best possible way. In academia, presentations at conferences or during seminars are key to communicating one's work. Conference presentations are a great way to reach a large audience, and seminar presentations are often required when on the job market. Presentations are even more important in these unprecedented times, because they often are the only point of contact with potential employers. Yet presentation skills receive scant attention during PhD programs and academic careers in general. To address this gap, in this PDW we identify the best (and worst!) ways to present academic research by focusing on the content and design of academic presentations, as well as presenter skills. In addition, we will address the important role of the context, or setting, in which the presentation takes place, with special attention to the intricacies of presenting online. The presenters, who have ample experience in presenting their research in different settings and to different audiences (academic and practitioner conferences, workshops, companies, television, YouTube, radio), will shed new light on the art of presenting using illustrative data from a dedicated survey among academics. Workshop participants will gain an understanding of the important components of an academic presentation and will gain hands-on experience in applying their new knowledge. With this PDW, participants will broaden their sight and learn how to develop academic presentations that are tailored to their own discipline, preferred design style, and personal skills.
