The Little Event is like the BIG Event – only little! Our one-day conference is aimed primarily at early-career STEM communicators who are keen to suck the knowledge and experience out of those who have been at it for ages. It is also an excellent opportunity to make professional and friendly relationships with others in similar work, or to update job-hunting skills for those hoping to take a next step in their careers.
At the Little Event you will:
• Develop your presentation skills
• Find out more about working in the business
• Learn a little about learning
• Pick up neat ideas
• Begin to turn your own ideas into actual public engagements
You will need to come prepared - bring along one or two of your own content ideas (including 'stuff'). During the day you will use these ideas to focus your thinking so coming empty-handed will put you on the back foot.
The programme makes use of the wealth of experience within BIG’s membership to support a classroom-sized bunch of delegates in their professional development.
But of course the BIG Event isn’t just about the sessions, it’s the people you meet there too. The Little Event also presents a great opportunity to meet people from across the UK working in similar roles and sharing similar experiences.
