Love Science but want to express it in a way that doesn’t involve field or practical work. Join us to find out how you can continue to work in science but in a way that you will enjoy.

We have the following alumni speakers:

  1. Mark Milhench (Physics) – Mark is a patent attorney, so writes and defends patents (patents are legal documents that allow the possessor exclusive right to use / sell an invention). It is a very lucrative job that could be described as being a scientific lawyer and forms a critical part of any high tech sector such a biotechnology, agrochemicals, GIS, oil production technology, software development, defense / space manufacturing etc, etc.
  2. Ben Storey (Physics) – Ben started-out as a consultant for a technology Public Relations company, progressed to being a digital producer, arranging advertising and online videos and now runs his own online fashion house. If you are interested in hearing how you can use  your science in PR, advertising, communications or being an Entrepreneur, please come along and talk to him.
  3. Robbie Lammas (Geography) – Robbie has spent some time running an Education Centre and is now working for Oxford University where he is helping to run a political research program and deliver an education program.
  4. Emily Foster  - Emily spent some time as a science teacher and is now working as a professional science communicator by delivering the science outreach for the Royal Holloway Science Faculty. Emily goes out into schools to enthuse the students about science by delivering fun lessons and demonstrations.

Booking highly recommended to secure your place, but not essential.
