We offer training as one or two day courses for up to 24 people, with a strong emphasis on practical activity.

What they thought:


“We worked with Science Made Simple for a science communication course tailored to our scientists at Bioversity International. The course was carried out in Rome, Montpellier and Kampala, and trained 44 staff representing eight country offices. The needs of our scientists were very different in the three locations. SMS trainers listened very carefully to our feedback, especially after the first session in Rome. We really appreciated their flexibility in changing and adapting the course content and their own style to our researchers’ needs.”

“We worked with four excellent trainers, with very different personalities and talents. What they all had in common was their enthusiasm and passion that inspired our scientists to communicate their work in a more engaging way. After the 2-day course, we were able to see some researchers really transformed.”

Some feedback from their scientists on our trainers:

“Very professional and funny too!”

“Friendly, encouraging and motivating. Also knowledgeable and experienced”

“They make a wonderful team. It’s so easy to learn with them. Our first contact with them made us feel completely confident and allowed us to learn better” 

Cardiff University – Neil Stephens

“science made simple have delivered communications training as part of our MSc qualification for over five years. We have had consistently good feedback from the students on the course, and over the years we have expanded the amount of training given because of this good work. We have every confidence in the excellence of their work. It is clear that Wendy’s skillful delivery responds to the diversity of student needs, and encourages the initially nervous, that they can practice communication skills in the safe environment of the science made simple training session”
