Event description

Description

Are you tired of the phrase “publish or perish?”

How about something that doesn’t sound so bad, and that actually works – like “Publish & Publicise.”

Why is it so important not just to publish – but to publicise?

ACEMS is proud to host a lunch forum on “Establishing Your Brand as a Researcher.” We’ll look into the following topics:

  • Why should you publicise
  • How can you do it
  • Benefits will you get
  • Your expertise outside of your research
  • Social Media
  • Writing for The Conversation

You will hear from:

Dr Lee Hickey – Senior Research Fellow within the QLD Alliance for Ag & Food Innovation at The University of Queensland. Dr Hickey has used social media to propel his career as an expert in the field of Genetics and Plant Breeding and to establish the Hickey Lab. Dr Hickey was just awarded the Advance Queensland Tall Poppy Scientist of the Year.

Michael Lund – Science & Technology Editor for The Conversation

Dist Prof Kerrie Mengersen – ARC Laureate Fellow and Deputy Director of ACEMS

Tim Macuga - ACEMS Media & Communications Officer. Tim is a former TV Executive News Producer with 30 years experience in media.
