Perfecting your elevator pitch: UK EQUATOR Centre Lightning Workshop

Join this free one-hour practical, interactive workshop from the UK EQUATOR Centre. In our Lightning Workshops series, our methodology, writing, and communication experts cover all of the essential aspects of writing and publishing your academic research. These sessions are designed for early-career biomedical and clinical researchers.

Whether standing by your conference poster, at a professional networking event, or in the pub, the question is the same: “So, what is it that you do?” With that crucial 2 minute elevator pitch answer ready, you’ll never say “ummmm” again!
