Want to better communicate your science to non-specialist audiences? Speaking Science can help.
Sean Duke set up Speaking Science in 2008 to help scientists at all stages of their careers, and press officers in academia and industry to achieve their science communication goals.
Sean has been editor-in-chief at Technology Ireland, and Horizon, and co-founded Ireland’s first popular science magazine Science Spin in 2003. He has written on a freelance basis for The Sunday Times, and Science for 17 years.
He has worked in television, presenting science slots on Ireland AM and The Daily Show. He has worked extensively in radio, most recently as co-presenter of two science-themed shows on RTE Radio 1, What’s It All About? and Life Matters and as a regular science correspondent for The Morning Show with Declan Meehan.
In 2013, he published his first book How Irish Scientists Changed the World, which reached number 2 in the best selling list at Hodges Figgis bookstore in Dublin.
In addition, he is active on social media, and his Blog Science Spinning, has more than 1,100 followers.
He is passionate about science, and its critical importance to all our lives.
The fundamental idea behind the initiative is to help scientists learn how to better communicate with the public and other key audiences, without the use of scientific jargon and terminology that is such a turn off for so many people.
Sean has provided communication training for groups at University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, NUI Maynooth, NUI Galway, Dublin City University, The Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, NovaUCD and the TCD-UCD Innovation Academy.
