Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia

Other than social media, conference presentations are likely the largest audience you can present your work to. And, let’s be honest, you could have had a barbecue during COVID19 with all of your research-related followers and not violated social distancing laws. So conferences are huge opportunities. But, so much of the focus is on the presentation and the data, when in actual fact you should be focused on getting connections. Connections that could be collaborators. Connections that could be employers.…

Sometimes, talking with your PhD students can be like trying to negotiate with a silverback gorilla.

But, for the other times, when its going to be tough but not gorilla tough – what can you do to make it easier? Or how could you have a tough conversation and avoid gorillas?

So, how do you stay focused? Or, more to the point, what are the kinds of things that distract you from making meaningful progress in your PhD and how can you avoid them? I’ll have (some) of the answers to those questions in this FREE on-line workshop. I can’t…
