Science Communication - Verbal - Workshop

The only way you can truly advocate for your science is to effectively communicate it to those who need to hear about it – this will truly make the difference between successful, impactful science and information that is lost and never used. Verbally communicating your ideas, your project, or your outcomes is different to how you would write those same things. You need to acknowledge this difference and prepare to be able to verbally communicate your ideas just as effectively as you can write them. This Workshop will help you enhance your scientific verbal communication so you can engage a larger audience and improve the number of people you can communicate with, which ultimately increases the impact of your science.​
