In May, the Researchers’ Grand Prix is offering a webinar for researchers on how to communicate their research in a quick and engaging way.

He also does work for clients outside of the academic world. He has also coached the jury on TV4’s television programme Let’s Dance and in the book ”Five Stars” he was interviewed by American author Carmine Gallo about ways in which researchers can better explain their research.
