iTALK: Speaking SciComm – a Panel Discussion Hosted by LaunchBio & SDBN


Have you ever wondered how journalists decide which science stories to report — or how you can attract their attention to your own startup or research field? Join LaunchBio and SDBN to hear from a panel of working journalists and public relations professionals to get the inside scoop.
Moderated by Neil Thompson of Teach the Geek, an organization designed to help scientists become accomplished public speakers, the discussion will start off with how the panelists broke into science communication. We?ll then transition into describing how a company can use science communication to achieve goals like promoting a brand, increasing funding, and driving growth. Graduate students can learn about alternative career options. Science communicators and senior management alike can pick up some tips. There?s something for everyone!
