VIC Event: Science + Media Speed Dating

Are you a scientist? Get tips on how to sell your science, then practice your one-minute pitch on speed dates with journalists and science writers.

Are you a journalist? Get all your new science stories in one night.  In half an hour you’ll hear 10 new science stories and meet a bunch of new talent.

Join us from 6:30pm on Tuesday 2 June at the Belgian Beer Cafe Southbank to share science stories over a few beers.

You never know who you’ll meet, or the stories you’ll hear science/media speed dating!

It’s more networking than dating, but you never know your luck.

Here’s how the night will go:

  • 6:30pm: Short mentoring session for the scientists over a drink or two to get warmed up
  • 7pm: Ten 2-minute speed dates
  • 7:30pm: Networking in the main bar

Numbers are limited to 30 people (15 scientists and 15 journos, so get in quick).

The event cost is $5 – just to secure your place, and this will get you one drink on arrival and some nibbles.

Register via Eventbrite to confirm your spot:

Please feel free to share the invitation with any scientists or journos you think might like to come along.
