The Presenter Network is a training and skill-sharing network for people who present. You don’t have to be a scientist to be part of the Presenter Network, although typically a lot of its members (60% in London) are.
Presenting could mean on stage, or chatting to people on a smaller scale at workshops, about exhibits or other activities where good communication skills really help.
There are 5 Presenter Network Hubs: London, Oxford, Cambridge, Leicester, and the Netherlands.
Free training sessions will run 3-4 a year at the Discovery Zone, Oxford Centre for Innovation, New Road, Oxford, OX1 1BY. As members you can suggest topics and lead sessions.

This free workshop is aimed at early career researchers (PhD students, post-doctoral fellows or equivalents) interested in communicating research and engaging the public, to hear directly from and ask questions of: researchers who have interacted with the media, science journalists, and policymakers.
The British Interactive Group (BIG) are hosting a skills day to explore diversity, and how we can all make our events, activities and organisations more inclusive, accessible and representative.
