“Presenting at the congress is a kind of challenge because you have to be fully prepared. You are part of the large machinery which is necessary to have a good congress for all participants. I have done presentations before in the EACVI Club 35 and by gaining experience I am still learning and developing my skills. The most important thing that I have learned through my previous presenting experiences is not to be nervous, although this can be a challenge, especially for first time presenters! When you have a message to convey, you need to be calm in order for your audience to gain and learn from it. A good and thorough pre-paration helps. Beforehand, I go through the presentation with my co-presenters in order to follow the same line in the session. Also, sharing ideas and thoughts at poster sessions is helpful as I can obtain information which I might use in my presentation. What you are presenting has to be very clear so everyone understands what you are trying to bring over. I have a little trick to make sure my talk is crystal clear: I practice with my friends. They are not trained as cardiac imaging specialists or cardiologists. If they understand my presentation, then I know it is good enough. Being a presenter at the congress is great; it is fantastic if your experience is important to others as it means that your work counts. It gives me confidence, which extends to my daily practice. Colleagues might consult me if they know I gave a presentation on a certain topic and I feel more appre-ciated by them which is wonderful. Ultimately, it makes me do better for my patients and I would recommend all young doctors to try and have a presenting experience.”
