  • Start up pack -4 pages covering what it is, what’s in it for you, what’s in it for the university and links to materials to help you run it (tips for speakers, speaker form, chair briefing and branding material)

  •  Preparing the series -3 pages covering what to do to set up a talk/ a talk series including draft text for a call for speakers and for formally inviting external speakers
