At its core, communication comprises a relationship between speaker and audience. Developing that relationship is key to communication success. Especially for women in science, the way things are said and done matters as much as the substance. How best to present the hard substance of scientific ideas with the verbal and nonverbal “soft skills” needed to communicate effectively about them? During this presentation, the explicit and implicit messages inherent in different communication styles are exposed, revealing how they promote - or degrade - interpersonal engagement, rapport, and influence.
