Communicating scientific research to non-specialist audiences is crucial for the dissemination of scientific knowledge. Presenting work effectively to the public, to a political audience or even to academics working in alternative disciplines, can be challenging and is typically outside the remit of many researchers.

As part of the Royal Society’s Creating connections – science, innovation and skills in Wales conference to be held at Cardiff City Hall (Gorsedd Gardens Road, CF10 3ND) on Monday 25 March 2019, they will be bringing their Media skills course to Cardiff.

This full-day course prepares scientists for broadcast media interviews with one to one training, as well as teaching how to interrogate scientific work to develop media worthy stories. Participants will practice on-camera and radio interviews, following a workshop with a top voice & TV performance coach, and learn communication techniques first hand from Alok Jha, science correspondent at The Economist.

Screenhouse trainers are award-winning science TV producers and journalists, making films for the main channels, producing top TV science talent as well as featuring scientists, academics and researchers in their films for BBC1 The One Show and elsewhere.

There are limited places on a first come, first served basis.

The course starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm, with a 1 hour lunch break to view the Creating connections exhibitions and speeches, and network with leading experts from academia, industry and government.

Cost: £419+VAT.
