Jo Browning on Scientifically Speaking: The art of communicating science with confidence and clarity

Now more than ever, scientists are in the spotlight and on the record.  The digital environment, together with the pandemic has forced scientists to communicate in new ways.  Writing is no longer enough. Today scientists are required to speak about their work in public – at conferences, on stage, on camera, on Zoom and on the record.

These are challenging situations which can support your professional career and get you noticed.  But they can also be nerve wracking.

To do this well you need to understand how to craft a message that gains traction and master the art of influential speaking, which is something you weren’t taught at university or medical school.

Speaking and communications coach Jo Filshie-Browning has 25 years of experience in science communications. She has written Scientifically Speaking to help scientists and physicians become compelling speakers who put their message across with confidence and clarity, both online and in person.

Join us for a LUNCH & LEARN Q&A session with Jo where she will introduce her book and answer your top questions about the challenges of speaking in public!

Hosted on Zoom

Dates: 30 June 2021

Time: 12:00pm – 13:00pm CET

international Women in Science and Women in Digital Healthcare invite you to attend an epic event!

Big Data is reinventing how we address global healthcare challenges. Good quality healthcare data, and lots of it, can power groundbreaking medical innovation. Data informs strategic healthcare policies, and can potentially, when used in collaboration with Artifi cial Intelligence technology, minimize global health risks through improved prediction. Factors such as rampant bad data as well as public distrust in data privacy and digital healthcare solutions, continue to present significant challenges.

DayOne Basel: Annual Conference – Register now

Join us at the 2019 DayOne Annual Conference meeting.

As technology continues to develop at a great pace, the DayOne Conference will seek answers to crucial questions: Is the industry ready for the future? Can we deliver on the promise of digital transformation? Do we have the right mindset? Additionally, what fundamental changes need to be considered concerning society, future skills, ethics and business models enabling the next big step?

The 2019 edition of the DayOne Conference aims to tap into the basic contradiction which stands at the very heart of every innovation: How can we create a better world and provide the needed return on investment? We will take a closer look at the ethical and economic principles that will have to guide us if we want to drive a future where emerging technologies will change health as we know it forever.
