This short one week course combines three key skills essential to most people and particularly important for academics and researchers.

As science is becoming truly international, researchers are faced with the challenge of publishing in established international journals. Developing a strong publication and citation track-record are major challenges for all scientists.

Disseminating knowledge is another challenge for researchers, which makes presentation / public speaking skills crucial. The power of knowledge can be much greater with the skills to present/disseminate it.

Course brochure with further information is available on request.

Tutoring

The course is taught by internationally renowned academics, with extensive experience of publishing, reviewing and editing for top journals and presenting to diverse audiences. The presenting part is taught by experts in Public Speaking, with extensive teaching experience internationally.
