Espresso Research Whisperer


The Research Whisperer and Espresso Science have joined forces, in the name of better research communication.

Tickets now available. We are asking each participant to donate $20 to Lateral Magazine.

The Research Whisperers have been long-time fans of Jen Martin and her passion for science communication. It turns out she is a fan of ours, too. So we are thrilled to have a chance to work together.

We all have a passion for research communication, using our skills to give back to our communities, and ensuring that researchers are informed and empowered to do the same.

What does this mean for you? 

We want to put on a full-day of communication skills workshops for PhD students and Early Career Researchers! We’re envisaging a rich, hands-on program that will provide heaps of context, practical tips, and peer-to-peer sharing about better communication.

We know that having great communication skills across a diversity of platforms and modes, and for different audiences, will serve you well no matter where you go. We know that academia is a tough gig these days. Whether you hang in there, or need to get out, networking and communication skills are the key things that you need.

When & where is it?

The 1-day event will be in Melbourne, Australia, on Friday 16 November 2018.

What’s on the program?

  • Writing as part of our professional practice.
  • Writing and editing for general audiences.
  • Blogging 101.
  • Networking for introverts, extroverts and ambiverts.
  • Crafting a brilliant public presentation.

There will be plenty of activities to help you to really get to grips with these topics.

All three of us are uber-excited to be working together in this way! Stay tuned for more information about this gig by following us on our various channels.
