The Presenter’s Paradox: When Less is More

Harlow's - Upstairs in the Starlet Room

Everybody wants to create a strong first impression. However, when creating these impressions, people often – and ironically – weaken the very impressions they seek to convey. This “presenter’s paradox” – and the psychological principles behind it – not only apply to designing one’s resume or pitching ideas but they can also apply to wide variety of situations that rising professionals face. In this session, we will highlight the behavioral science on this topic as well as provide attendees the opportunity to engage in a “pitching” exercise with one another, to further learn from each other how to fine-tune the craft of presentation.
