Training

Are you a research institute with academics who could use some training?  Look no further!

I love to share my experience and expertise and contribute to the development of others science communication skills.

I have lectured and lead seminars at a university level on a variety of topics pertinent to the fields of science communication and public engagement.  These include-

  • Performance and public speaking skills.
  • The importance of Public Engagement with research.
  • A practical guide to the use of narrative in science communication.
  • Finding the right tools for the right project.
  • Science in the media.

Past clients have included the University of York, Leeds Education Business Partnership, the Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce, Strathclyde University and Glasgow University.

I am also a part of Bright Club Bristol, where he trains researchers to perform stand-up comedy.  I have lead comedy and theatre workshops for tons of other institutions around the UK and Ireland.

If you would like a workshop, lecture or seminar on any of these topics, or to discuss other opportunities, then please get in touch.
