So keep in touch and remember: if you have a vision worth following, no geographical, social or economical shackles can hold you. Let’s make this world a better place!

Getting started with LinkedIn

For comparison, my account is 
https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=374448&trk=spm_pic

1. Get a LinkedIn account.

2. Write a good headline – as you can see, mine is ”Communications Consultant, Public Speaker & Professional Writer with a passion for science, language, history & people”.

3. Write a summary. As you can se, my summary says the following

Swedish communications consultant, public speaker, educator, freelance writer and author.

Specialities: 
• Scientific communication & science communication.
• Presentation & writing techniques.
• Medical, technical & scientific writing aimed at a popular audience.

”Helping brilliant professionals and students get their facts, ideas and opinions across.

You can “find out who you are” by answering the questions below and edit the answer into a concise elevator pitch.

a. What do you do as a professional?
b. What problem do you solve?
c. How is your knowledge, approach or method different?
d. Why should I care?

4. Try to fill as many things as possible. Note that you can also add images and web addresses to your wall.

5. Finally, start chasing recommendations. Make sure your teachers, colleagues and project leaders write something nice about you!

Amgen Scholars, KI, 25 June, 2014

Hi everybody,

Sorry for late feedback—I spent a few days in southern Sweden (Skåne county, where you find my Alma Mater, the most excellent Lund University).

As always, I enjoyed my—alas, so few!— hours with the Amgen Scholars students. I hope your projects proceed according to schedule and that you find time to explore our somewhat peculiar country–I have provided some recommendations below. 

Feedback
Below are some links and references which you can find useful (and perhaps entertaining).

Excursion
I will probably join you at on of the summer excursions, most likely the one on August 2. If you have any questions about communication, there’ll be time to discuss them in person then.

Presentation days
I will attend at least one of the presentation days, probably August 15. Feel free to send me your PowerPoint and poster drafts for feedback!

Good luck, and bear in mind what the Amgen Scholars student Leonidas Georgiou wrote in an e-mail to me: ”Lets face it: badly communicated science is boring and a big component of doing science is motivation; we can’t expect to motivate people without good communication skills!”

O.

Spending time in Sweden

Öresund between Skåne County and Denmark. The Swedish poet Harry Martinson once wrote that ”The night of June never takes place; it's more like a dewy day.”
