Podcast | Making the most of conservation events (for your career)

Conferences, meetings, festivals, community gatherings, networking events and more… Today there are many in-person and virtual conservation events to choose from!

So how can you make the most of events for your career?

In this episode we discuss how events can help your career, how to choose which event(s) to participate in, and how to make the most of an event – before, during and after.

Joining our host Dr Nick Askew is Dr Fernando Mateos-González of Bioblogía – or Nando he’s often known – and Dr Stephanie Schuttler from the world of Fancy Scientist.
