On March 17th Beyond the PhD will be hosting our Fourth Annual Networking Event from 5:30-7:30pm ET. Our keynote speaker will be Amy Aines, communications strategist, trainer and speaker coach.
Amy Aines loves helping smart scientists succeed. And as a communications strategist, trainer and speaker coach, that’s exactly what she does. She is the author of a “how to” book Championing Science – Communicating Your Ideas to Decision Makers that she wrote to help scientists become better communicators. Amy is CEO of a communications consulting firm that she founded after a 20-year industry career running corporate communications. Her counsel has enabled hundreds of scientists in the telecommunications, wireless, high-tech, and biotech industries to use words to build relationships and get results. She’s spent three decades positioning and branding products, companies, and people.
In 2019, after Championing Science was published, Amy changed her career focus from consulting to teaching. She volunteers as an advisor for the STEM Advocacy Institute and generously gives her time to organizations like Beyond the PhD where she speaks and gives interactive seminars. Recently she’s given workshops at Columbia, NASA, the Department of Energy RECS Program, and the University of Virginia on communication strategies to build connections, careers, and confidence in any situation. Today her mission is to help and inspire sicentists to be our best when we talk about ourselves and our science.
