Ginny Smith’s presentation from the Finding Ada Conference 2020.
We all love stories, and science is full of them. Storytelling can help upgrade your public engagement, whether that’s blogging, public speaking or TikTok. These skills might even help pep up your next seminar or keep that cute stranger’s attention in the pub! This session will guide you through the principles of story-telling, and how to apply them to your research. You will learn to consider the audience, and leave confident you can tell your science story in an engaging and effective way.
