Scitech, Inspiring Australia and Australian Science Communicators WA bring you an exciting day focused on building skills and knowledge.

In this era of digital growth and science communicators producing social media and online information - and with more information being readily available on digital platforms - how you present information and cut through the noise has never been more important.

The Oxford Dictionary Word of the Year 2016 is ‘post-truth’ and in 2017 we delve into helping communicators to separate their science from fiction (also known as post-truths, fake-news and alternative-facts!) with the conference theme of:
Digital disruption and a post-truth world: future planning for science communicators.

The keynote speaker is Gihan Perera, futurist and leadership skills coach. There is also a great line-up of additional speakers, workshops and a panel across 6 sessions over the day.

Exploring goals, philosophies, strategies and skills, this conference will grow your abilities and influence your thinking about the changing world. The schedule includes networking opportunities to make new contacts and share experiences.

Your registration will also give you:
> Access to the National Science Week networking event held on the terrace directly after the conference.
> Morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and evening nibbles.
> Digital and hard copy resources to build upon conference topics and learnings.

Join us for a wonderful, energetic day celebrating science communication and keeping up with the latest trends and opportunities.
