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.

In this fun and practical workshop we’ll hone your message, give you ideas for presenting your research, practise interview techniques and learn more about the mainstream media today. You’ll come away feeling more confident about working with the media and better prepared for when a reporter calls.
