Free media training session for researchers

A free media training session for researchers is being staged in Leeds.

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is staging the event at the Clayton Hotel in Sweet Street between 9.30am and 4.30pm on 13 September 2018.

Spaces are still available for ESRC and Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded academics.

The training is an opportunity for researchers, no matter what stage of their career, to develop their skills and feel comfortable handling media interviews. Whether a PhD student, postdoctoral researcher or senior fellow, the new practical media training session provides the guidance needed to engage the media with confidence – and plenty of opportunity to practice.

In small group settings run by journalists, the sessions are full of simulations providing each delegate with expert advice, allowing them to develop their interview technique, explain the findings of their research and pitch their story.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, together with useful course materials.
