People love stories. They entertain, they help us to remember. This short interactive session is aimed at researchers looking to improve the effectiveness of their communication. It will introduce the importance of working out who your audience is and what they want to know. It will also explore how storytelling is as relevant to research communication as it is to fairy tales. We all have to communicate our research and ideas, why not do it through stories?

The session will be delivered by Dr Tom Monie, Academic Director for STEM, Institute of Continuing Education. Tom has previously spent around 15 years as a research scientist, including as a Wellcome Trust RCDF, and is passionate about helping others become effective communicators.

This event is free but if you would like to attend RSVP to anke.friedrich@admin.cam.ac.uk.
