Event description

Description

Sign up for a 30-minute, one-to-one appointment with Peter Copeman and Bernie Bissett. Present your draft Three Minute Thesis (3MT)/Pitch for Funds (P4F) pitch to them and receive personalised feedback. Be prepared and punctual.

Peter is a TEDx speaker and 3MT coach, who has helped three PhD students reach top ten placings at the 3MT Asia-Pacific Final. Bernie was one of three winners at the 2017 UC P4F competition and the People’s Choice winner in 2015 so she knows what it takes to get up amongst the prize money.

Bring your PowerPoint slide on USB (and/or a prop) with you to the session.
