Press Conference Protocol
Jennifer Ouellette, Science Journalist in Residence, KITP

At some point in his or her career, almost every scientist is likely to be asked to participate in some form of press conference. Yet few receive any kind of training to prepare them to be effective communicators in such a setting. This workshop will offer useful tips about what makes for a useful press conference presentation. We will then stage a few mock press conferences, in which participants will be asked to give a 10-minute summation of their research and field questions from the audience, followed by critiques.
