Chalk Talk Science is an independent organization dedicated to helping scientists become better speakers.  CTS helps groups start, grow and maintain programs that teach advanced oral communication skills.  CTS is a resource partner with many organizations and individuals involved in promoting science communication, and has been mentoring researchers for more than seven years. CTS serves colleges/universities, research centers and hospitals, and corporate research centers, providing advice, guidance and practical workshops. CTS is also a network of researchers, administrators, students, adult educators, and everyday taxpayers who wish to have scientists speak better.  CTS is headquartered in Santa Rosa CA and serves the United States and Canada.  

By increasing awareness of the value of good speaking skills and providing resources to learn and practice science communication, CTS recognizes that we will develop a community of practice in which good presentations are the norm, not the exception.
