Myths about LionsDen

OH THE FRUSTRATION!!! It’s ironic for someone who makes his living by communication, but after 25 years there are still a number of myths about LionsDen. I hope this short email will go some way ...

Sharing my presentation secrets

What makes a great scientific presentation? Clarity, simplicity, enthusiasm, a clear narrative, and a great beginning and an end. I've been sharing my presentation techniques all over the world for many years. As the conference ...

The value of clear communication

When you work in the communications business, many companies and individuals ask for ways of measuring the impact of communicating.   A good question, and an understandable one.  The answer varies depending on a number ...

Presenting in Russian

The most unusual presentation I've made recently: me speaking English to Russian haematologists, with Russian slides. It's harder than you think..especially if you get out of synch by clicking the slide advancer twice. Still, it ...

Pharma and new antibiotics

Antibiotic resistance is a threat as great as terrorism, according to Sally Davies, the UK's Chief Medical Officer. Scaremongering? Many people don't think so, including the NHS and Public Health England, who've produced a video ...

What our clients say:

  • Praise for Communicating Clearly about Science and Medicine
    One of the most useful books I’ve read in years. Jam-packed with useful tips and insights…full of practical wisdom. My only regret is that I was not able to read it 30 years ago!

    Professor Sir Martin Taylor, University of Oxford, UK
  • The session and trainer were excellent. This was not a typical session as the senior leader in our organisation said he’d already been trained. She was extremely adaptable and thought on her feet and got to grips with the situation without bruising any egos, which was important.

    Global Brand Manager, pharmaceutical company.
  • ‘A must-read for all doctors and scientists involved in presenting results of medical research.’

    Prof David White. Ontario.
  • I left the training on a real high. I went home and bored my family with how exciting, inspiring and above all useful the media training was. The practice interviews were by turns terrifying, humbling and thought-provoking. I shall never look at a media interview about science or medicine in the same way again. I also hope I will be better at it! Heartfelt thanks.

    Rheumatology professor, UK
