Our next event: A roundtable with The Economist’s Science and Technology Correspondent

by AprilSix Proof

Our next event is a continuation of knowledge and insight from our first science research themed roundtable in March. At that discussion called ‘Real world research: Telling the right story’ we covered 10 principles for successfully communicating research with real-world applications. We thought it would be a nice fit to have Jason Palmer, The Economist’s Science and Technology Correspondent, talk at our next event. Jason will give our attendees the rare chance to understand the journalist’s view of how to successfully pitch your science research story to the media.


We will host attendees at the The Ham Yard Hotel, one of Firmdale’s exclusive individually designed hotels in Central London. The event will begin at 9.30am with breakfast, followed by two short talks covering:

At the event, we will:

*Discuss how to develop a strategy that creates and maintains relationships with journalists with Jim Sutton, Director, Proof Communication

*Hear from Jason Palmer, The Economist’s Science and Technology Correspondent, on his tips for framing a story for media, and his view on the scientific research and innovation topics that are and will be top of the news agenda

After Jim and Jason speak, we will open the floor to attendees to share challenges and offer solutions under the Chatham House Rule. Then it all wraps up at the convenient time of 10.45am so that attendees can jet off for their other meetings.

This event is free but spaces are limited. If interested, please contact me at or on (0)7944 792 859.
