Bob Li: The secret in delivering a good oral presentation

Bob Li shared on LinkedIn:

“Science requires effective communication to make impact. It was an honor to present an oral abstract of an international clinical trial alongside world experts at the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.

This was my 9th year in a row delivering oral presentations of original research at major academic conferences in my field – ASCO, AACR, ESMO, WCLC.

What I have learned over those years at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is that delivering a good oral presentation is like telling a good story. There is a beginning, a sequence of events, an ending, and a moral of the story.

This applies to science, in which we start with a question usually driven by curiosity, followed by a hypothesis, an experimental plan, a set of results and conclusions.

To accelerate the Cure4Cancer, we need effective communications with multiple stakeholders worldwide.

Fortunately, these communication skills could be learned and developed. Let’s keep learning to make impact, and life is more fun that way.”
