How to Win the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®)
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

Having a concise ‘elevator pitch’ about your research and why it is important is useful when you are talking to people at conferences - and when your grandmother demands to know why you haven’t left school yet at the family BBQ. The 3MT® is an international competition which asks research students to present a compelling three minute oration on their thesis topic, and its significance, in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience - using a single power-point slide. In this workshop we watch videos of three minute thesis winners (and losers) and get to work on your own pitch. At the end of this workshop you will have the outline of an elevator speech and, probably, greater clarity on your thesis too.

This workshop provides a training opportunity for postgraduate researchers planning to enter the Cardiff University Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition but is open to all PGRs - you don't have to enter the competition. More details for the competition will be available shortly.
