Free Wednesday Workshops

Every Wednesday from 1230 to 1315 (Melbourne, Australia Time), I run a free workshop on various topics aimed at PhD students, ECRs and established researchers.

How I work

Speaking

I’m an inspiring and engaging speaker (well my mum thinks so) who is passionate about making the most of your training beyond your PhD.

Coaching

Are you a PhD student or academic? Do you want to know what’s next or what else is possible?

Facilitating

I help academic institutions and their staff be commercially smart about the application and implementation of their research ideas.

Training

Every fortnight I do a free workshop.

I also do paid training. Covering all sort of topics relevant to PhD students and graduates.

You can sign up to one as in individual or have your institution book me to deliver something.

  • This question really doesn't have a straight answer. PhDs are not easy. They are not intended or designed to be easy. But there are probably things you can do to make the whole process easier.
