Talks

Add a new dimension to your conference: ask Elaine Snell to give a talk to inspire your audience to get involved in public outreach, or speak to your students about their career options.

Perhaps you are looking for a chairman to facilitate a meeting or a speaker to give an entertaining and informative talk after dinner. We can recommend excellent people for your event.

“Elaine is an excellent speaker. She’s knowledgeable, thoughtful, and very interesting to listen to. She spoke to our philosophy students about some possible career paths, and they were fully engaged throughout. She pitched her talk at exactly the right level, so that the talk was accessible and inspiring. She really took into account what students might already know, and what they might not. She responded brilliantly to questions, and made students feel very much at ease throughout.”

Dr Yasemin Erden, St Mary’s University, London

“Elaine spoke to our A level and undergraduate project students about  science in the news.  The students were totally engaged and inspired by the discussions and interactive session. This was particularly important for them as it formed the basis of their week -long Developmental Neurobiology Academy project where we asked them to produce a piece of science communications. Huge thanks to Elaine for the insightful and perfectly pitched workshop.”

Dr Leigh Wilson, King’s College London
