Who we are
SciComm Success exists to help scientists build the skills they need to share their science and scientific results with non-experts and experts alike.
We offer multi-channel science communication workshops and skill-specific trainings, we talk about the importance of science communication, we organise and support regular SciComm events to enable researchers to share their science in public spaces.
Behind the business
SciComm Success is the brainchild of Suzanne Whitby, a communication consultant and trainer with a passion for science. Suzanne has been working in the communication field across a range of sectors worldwide for nearly 18 years and with scientists in particular since 2005.
Her move from corporate communication to science communication began in 2008 when a conversation with a scientist made her aware of the depletion of tuna in our oceans. That sent her on a journey of research and discovery, and she quickly found herself drowning in scientific jargon and acronyms. Frustrated at being unable to understand what was happening in the world around her from scientific sources, she started talking to scientists and non-scientists to hear their experiences and she quickly realise that not only was there a need for communication skills training for scientists, but there was a need for science communication training that would connect scientists with non-experts and ordinary people like herself. The result was SciComm Success.
“Suzanne ranks in the top 3% of experts that I have ever met. She is smart, sharp, professional, insightful and delivers great results. I have worked with her as a colleague and on my own business projects. She understands all aspects of communication – online, in person, through visual mediums and cross borders. Suzanne is one of the first people I seek to consult and involve in all my projects. She is outstanding.”
