Your Time Starts Now! – if you’re doing a PhD at pretty much any university around the world, chances are you will have heard of the Three Minute Thesis competition. This exercise in communication for up-and-coming researchers is probably the best thing you can do – other than writing a thesis, obviously – during your candidature. The skills you will learn and the contacts you will make will be invaluable for the rest of your career. Simon Clews’ comprehensive guide is based on years of training competitors and organizing, hosting and judging competitions all around the world.
