Connect2Communicate: communicating your message with charisma, clarity and conviction
Convener: Niamh Shaw  | Co-Conveners: Alex Boyd , Anthea Lacchia , Fergus McAuliffe 
Making use of established techniques from the world of theatre and improvisation, this session will enable participants to make genuine connection with their audience. In this way, science communication becomes more than just the transmission of information, it influences audiences on a much deeper level. And it’s fun! With over 17 years expertise as performer and scientist, Niamh Shaw creator and co-facilitator, has been working with University College Dublin and Tyndall Centre Cork and the Alda Centre for Communicating Science to provide a dynamic, practice-based approach to communications training for graduate students, postdocs, academics and professionals in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine and other academic subjects.
