Scientific & Technical Communicators free open network event
In Cambridge recently, there has been interest in 'What is a Technical Communicator ', 'How can English/Marketing trained staff succeed and get help in local sci tech companies', 'Where can I get help? I didn't know about the ISTC'. 'A big event is great...but I want to meet others locally.' 'I couldn't get to the ISTC conference, what important changes did I miss?'
Come along to this informal ISTC Area meeting, introduce yourself, meet others and ask YOUR questions.
