Dear ASCers,
Just a reminder about this event on next week - we've got ONE scientist ticket left, and a few more for journalists/science communicators.
Please feel free to pass the word around to any freelancers, science writers, broadcasters etc. you know who are based in Melbourne.

*         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!  But we do note that this is a networking event, not a dating event.
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: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/sciencemedia-speed-dating-tickets-16826610846
Please feel free to share the invitation with any scientists or journos you think might like to come along.
Regards,
Toni
On behalf of the ASC Victorian branch
