How confident are you presenting at conferences? Would you like some free skills training?

AdairIn advance of our 14th September Postgraduate Researcher Conference, The Graduate School has asked Dr Adair Richards, trainer, broadcaster and consultant, to facilitate conference skills and 3 Minute Thesis training for our researchers. Even if you are not presenting at our conference, learning these skills is immensely valuable to you as a researcher and Adair is a master of teaching presentation techniques.
