Feedback from previous Workshops include:
This was one of the best workshops I have attended. I have learned a lot of new skills and it feels they all sank in without me having to refer back to any notes. In fact I can’t stop talking about it. The organisers were very friendly and approachable as well as knowledgeable. Chicheley Hall is a beautiful venue and I think it really added something special to the whole experience.
A fantastic workshop! Every session was stimulating and there was a wonderful atmosphere throughout the three days. Each task allowed us to push ourselves, be creative and really apply the principles we had learnt. I only wish the workshop had been longer! I came away with great enthusiasm, having learnt so much and having met so many nice people.
A truly excellent course that I think all scientists should attend! It was a great opportunity to meet other aspiring scientists and to be inspired by amazing speakers. I thoroughly enjoyed it – one of the best courses I have been on. Thank you!
What an absolutely wonderful experience! Apart from trying my hand at story telling,TV-‐show-‐writing and podcast-‐making, I learned so much about these various Aspects of science communication. It has definitely opened my eyes to the opportunities out there, and I am more confident and eager to apply the skills I learned.
This workshop was a fun and thought-provoking experience, in a wonderful location. I genuinely enjoyed meeting and working with a mix of people, and taking the time to step back and think about my work in a different way. I would recommend to anyone who has even the slightest interest in developing their communication skills.
