Hands-on workshops to make you more confident working with the media and better prepared when a journalist calls.
Media skills for scientists
Ever wondered why scientists like Brian Cox seem to breeze through media interviews with confidence and a smile? Very little of it is down to natural talent—it’s all about training and practice.
