The Summer Campus training program launches

During the training "Effective Presentation", the trainers told about positioning rules and ways to attract the audience’s attention. Apart from that, they singled out a number of gestures which can be used at business meetings and presentation and gave examples of negatively perceived gestures. In particular, the trainers recommended not to walk to and fro during the public presentation and not to have a closed posture. The students were also taught to overcome anxiety.
After the theoretical part, the participants were divided into teams, in which they presented each other their projects used the acquired skills. After work in groups, the students analyzed and discussed their presentations.
One of the trainers remarked, "Despite the limited time of the training, the participants managed to show their potential to the full. It was seen based on their activity and involvement in the process even in short tasks."
Within the framework of the training "Teamwork", the participants were divided in working groups. The students were offered to fulfill a series of game tasks oriented on strengthening interaction and cooperation techniques for achieving a unified decision. Business trainer Viktoriya Zavadski stressed, "Creating a team and achieving good cooperation are crucial for fulfilling the project. There are a lot of leaders here, and the participants need to learn to rally so that they could work efficiently in joint projects."
One of the trainers presented to the participants an effective decision-making scheme; its key stages include defining criteria and their specific gravity, evaluating each decision, summing up weighted estimates and choosing an optimal variant.
Summarizing the results of the muster class, business trainer Viktor Yurtaev remarked that a team of leaders was united at the Summer Campus. He commented, "Leadership often contradicts teamwork.

But the students are goal-oriented and they will work effectively in a team, their experience will help them."
