Standing on the shoulders of giants is seen as a necessary part of innovation and science. However, it is not just giants that must capture our imagination and fuel our pursuit of knowledge. All scientists, of big and small reputation, have a part to play in evolving fields to new heights through clear and exciting communication of their results.  As scientists we must learn to not just communicate our findings but inspire others to take up our work and think about our work even after they have left the lecture.  In this talk, Dr. Rebecca Pillai Riddell (Tier 1 York Research Chair in Pain and Mental Health; DIVERT Mental Health NPI) has translated her experience as a TEDx speaker into lessons for scientists to speak to other scientists. Geared towards trainees and faculty, this interactive professional development workshop will guide you to create talks that will help spark interest in your work and help others engage with your ideas…or, at the very least, to have the audience check their email and texts less when you are speaking!
