Events & launches

The overwhelmingly good thing about an event is that it is live! Science and medicine can be presented in so many imaginative ways, from debates on serious topics, to art and drama.

We plan public programmes that bring experts and the public together for a discussion, or actors create a scenario that makes research come alive. These occasions give people the chance to find out about new developments. And just as importantly, the experts find out what the public thinks!

Do you have a report or a book, a new building or group to launch? Working with you we will produce a memorable event – a reception, a dinner, or a panel discussion – to get it off to a good start.

“In my experience, if an event has Elaine Snell’s name along side it, it will be both well-organised and imaginatively constructed.”

Quentin Cooper, BBC presenter

“Elaine handled my book launch with such grace and equanimity despite many setbacks and constraints, and dealt with a diverse and eclectic mix of collaborators and helpers. The event was a great success as well as being enjoyable. Elaine was an unobtrusive and yet masterful ringmaster, and I couldn’t recommend her more highly. I felt in safe and capable hands right through it all, and her encouragement, support and enthusiasm sustained us all. Thank you Elaine!
