Jamie Gallagher trainer

Great course, great presenter. I've attended some other presentation courses, so was afraid that it would be very standard advice, but Jamie really made me think about presenting in new ways

University of Manchester Postgraduate student

It was practical rather than just listening to theory. I was involved in all the activities

Testimonials

 

I felt included in the development of the training as Jamie listened to our requirements for the training and suggested options for various structures and contents that might work for the group. On the day, Jamie’s passion for evaluation definitely came across and there was a great mixture of listening to theories and hands-on activities.

Science Communication workshop
Public Engagement training Jamie Gallagher

Jamie is one of the first external facilitators I reach out to for public engagement work as he has a good understanding of engaged research, is able to motivate researchers and make the area relevant to them, is well organised, approachable and flexible in his approach. I have received excellent feedback from researcher participants and have sat in on some of the training Jamie has delivered which was of a high standard.
