WELCOME TO RG CONFERENCE TALKS
For a scientific conference, he clearly targets his talks to the audience that is familiar with the scientific process if not the topic, as sometimes the subspecialty of the audience may be entirely different.
He is really a good speaker and he effectively manages to communicate something to everybody in the room, no matter who they are or how much they already know. To the relatively uninformed, he at least tends to convey: what is the purpose of the conference or meeting and why is it important. At the same time, to the well-informed, he conveys how the topic, session or panel discussion can add or broaden the thinking.
MAKE A RESERVATION
DR Rajeev Gupta uses narrative and stories in the talk and says it is impossible to overemphasize the importance of narrative in a talk. He tells a story in which he is the principal character. His stories are fun. With his amusing stories, he hooks the audience and they willingly follow him even into dark corners of an unknown topic.
Through his functional, stories he can engage people in the audience who may be struggling to follow the topic. Dr Gupta says that - it amazes me that people prepare talks without ever asking themselves this question, but they appear to. A lot of people spend too much time describing their research methods -- what they did, and what their data look like. It's easy to understand why people make that mistake: what you did is, after all, what you spent most of your time doing. But the whole point of your research effort was to learn something that you could then communicate to others. There's no need to force your audience to endure the same tedium. You can save your audience all that work by telling them what it was you learned.
