Whatever you do, help us love science the way you do! -- Alan Alda

To strengthen the bridges between science and society, we've got to communicate better. Becoming a better speaker helps build those connections with all types of audiences as well as enhances your own professional development. Make a commitment to improve your communications skills, then embark on a path that will enable you to explain science in an informative, interesting and entertaining way.  

Why improve your speaking skills? Because, you want to...

  • become a better leader

  • get a job or be promoted

  • explain science to your students & colleagues

  • be recognized for your research

  • counter the anti-science rhetoric

  • impact science policy development

  • improve your grant applications and fundraising

  • make you, your lab, department and university/company look & sound good

  • help non-scientists understand science
