Register for Retreat 2017

Presenting oneself and one’s own work is an essential skill for a young researcher. Your impact on the scientific community is dependent on the way you present yourself and your data. This is why we will use this retreat as an opportunity to actively practice short presentations, gain confidence while presenting and discover the storyteller inside each of us. The retreat will be run by hfp consulting and will take place in Kandersteg, Switzerland, from May 17-19, 2017.
