I'm joining speechwriter Jeff Porro next Monday to share ways to "Take Your Next Speech from Good to Great: Speaker Secrets for Executive Women" at the Tower Club in Tysons Corner, Virginia. The March 10 session takes place from 12 noon to 2pm and includes luncheon; registration is $35 for club members and $40 for non-members. Call the club to register at 703-761-4250. And Northern California scientists from all disciplines will be the first to take part in a series of communications training workshops I'm facilitating, sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Science Foundation. The first skill-building workshop is set for March 14 in San Jose; follow the link above to request more information. The workshops are part of a new initiative, Communicating Science: Tools for Scientists and Engineers, that includes a website full of resources, training webinars and tips to help scientists explain their research to a wide range of public audiences.
