The World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) is the sole international voice for physical therapy and organises a scientific congress every other year. Prior to our 2019 event involving almost 2,000 speakers and chairs from across the globe we felt it would be helpful to provide additional support for novice presenters to complement our written guidance. For this new initiative we approached Helen von Dadelszen who agreed to lead on several webinars focusing on presentation skills for speakers of different presentation formats.
Helen is very approachable and easy to work with; she is very responsive, asking the right questions to obtain the information required to understand the context and inform her presentation. Helen’s presentations were watched by more than 300 participants. Feedback suggested that the webinars were highly appreciated and the most relevant topics were addressed in the presentations.
We enjoyed working with Helen developing this new format of guidance and support for our congress speakers.
