Science Communication (SciComm) is vital for your success as a STEM leader
Ask any scientist—preparing to deliver a lecture, whether to experts in your field, researchers from other fields or to non-professionals like the general public, funders, policy makers etc., can be a daunting task. In either setting, the messages need to be clear, concise and, most importantly, memorable.
My name is Meital Salmor and I am a Science Communication (SciComm) trainer and strategist. My passion is helping researchers, industry leaders and students to elevate their communication skills and present their research effectively and engagingly to diverse audiences.
Together, we dismantle complicated research and data into clear messages, minimize the use of jargon and technical terms and sharpen presentation skills. read more ›

SCICOMM IN ACTION
“As researchers, our tendency is to be very focused on our research subjects and less about how it may affect our society in a broader perspective. When I talk about my research, I understand that what seems important to me is not as important or interesting to people outside my research. When training with Meital, I was able to build messages that resonate with different audiences and in an efficient time frame that makes the audience absorb my messages in a memorable way.”
Rafael Stern, PhD student at the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Weizmann Institute of Science
In this video, you can watch Rafael in action, giving a talk about his work while passionately telling the audience his personal story and what led him to do his groundbreaking research in climate science. Wait to the end and listen to the beautiful poem Rafael is reciting.
