I’ve got a professional interest in the public communication of science. Earlier this year I became very impressed in the high quality of the multimedia presentations of the TED fellows. The TED fellows are chossen leaders with big idea to sell and they are mentored and tutored to high standards and deliver their talks to one of two TED conferences. To my mind these set the benchmark for the public communication of science. I suggest that the University should have a kind of mini version of this to inspire and develop staff. I think from that conversation came a suggestion that I look at the recently formed Toastmasters club. I’ve now decided to join this.
I’ll try to use this space to keep a log of my endeavours on this Impossible Dream
