I am a qualified teacher with years of experience of delivering education and training. Here are some examples of the training I can deliver but I am open to discussing custom programmes that fit within my areas of expertise. Training can be delivered at a venue of your choice, online, or a mixture of both (e.g. with in person with online follow up, or a flipped/asynchronous model). Most sessions can also be adapted to suit the time you have available, from a 1 hour seminar to a full day workshop. All sessions are suitable for researchers (including students) and research-adjacent professionals. Rates for ‘off the shelf’ programmes are £600 for up to 90 minutes, £850 for half a day (up to 3 hours) and £1500 for a full day (up to 6 hours) plus travel expenses for in-person delivery.

Take your video conferencing game to the next level and find out what goes into running a really slick online event. From making sure you have the right kit to boosting engagement, improving accessibility and mitigating Zoom fatigue. After this workshop you’ll be a smooth(er) operator.

What’s the difference between an OK event and one that people rave about afterwards? It’s not just about booking a venue and a speaker, it’s about thinking through every detail of the entire guest experience. This workshop will help you run events that exceed expectations.

Activities at a science fair

Would you like to do outreach or engagement with schools or at public events like festivals or fairs? Learn how to turn your research into an interactive and engaging activity. Find the hook, understand your audience, make it hands-on and make it fun!

Of course I would say this, but research-adjacent careers can be more rewarding, more flexible, and more stable than academic careers. They can be a proactive choice which let you tap into your personal superpowers. Find out about the options and what might suit you.

What are you good at? I don’t mean what you do for a job, what are your unique strengths and skills? And how can they help you to build or change your career? This workshop is about tapping into personal aptitudes and transferable skills to build flexible and resilient careers.

To get shortlisted for jobs at universities and similar organisations you need to know how to play the game. Learn about what recruiters are really looking for and how applications are scored to improve your chances of making the cut and getting an interview.

Are you planning a high-stakes meeting or event, but need a bit of support to make it happen?

I can help you plan and deliver a meeting or event that is engaging and fun, runs like clockwork, AND helps you achieve your aims. I specialise in helping different kinds of people work together for example stakeholder engagement or developing interdisciplinary research teams. Have a look at my portfolio to see some of the things I have previously worked on.

From £1500 for a full day event including pre-event planning and in-person facilitation.

AKA anything else… I am also available for flexible consultancy work. Have a look at my portfolio to see some of the things I have previously worked on.

Whatever stage you are at, I can help you develop and deliver a plan to maximise the impact of your research. This could be anything from sketching out a schools workshop to developing an institutional engagement strategy. I can also advise on and edit communication and engagement plans for funding applications, and help with finding and collaborating with non-academic partners.

From £500/day depending on the type of work and contract length


Book a Power Hour to get an hour of my undivided attention and expert guidance on your research-adjacent challenges. This is a great option if you don’t need a full consultancy or facilitation service, but would like to get my input on a particular issue. This might include…

  • Planning and running an effective research-adjacent meeting or event
  • Job applications, CVs and navigating your career
  • Research communications advice and feedback including comms strategy, websites, podcasts, social media
  • Planning or evaluating public engagement or outreach projects

This is a one-off session with no further commitment (unless you want to!). It includes pre-session email contact to understand your issue and potentially follow-up ‘homework’ or feedback depending on the topic.

£150 per session
