Nuclear PhD student takes 2nd prize at Nuclear Institute Speaking Competition
Congrats to PhD student Sarah O’Sullivan, winning second prize at the recent North West Nuclear Institute Young Persons’ Speaking Competition.
Held on Thursday 6th April in Warrington, the competition is an opportunity for participants to gain valuable experience in communications skills in front of a live audience. Emphasis is placed on presentation rather the written word and the ability to handle questions from the audience.
Based in the NucleUS Immobilisation Science Laboratory, Sarah is completing a PhD in Next Generation Nuclear Centre for Doctoral Training (NGN CDT). She competed against 5 other participants, each encouraged to present a talk on "any nuclear, energy or environmental subject, whether technical, social or personal".
As a result Sarah was awarded second place, £200 cash prize and certificate, and an invitation to the North West branch annual dinner.
