Biological & Environmental Sciences Research Seminar Series

Instructions for B.E.S. Hosts

It is expected that those inviting speakers will act as the Host, i.e. deal with directions here, introduce them and if they're staying overnight organise drinks/meal. In some cases it might even be appropriate to put a speaker up in your own house. Hosts are expected to arrange dates, and deal with expenses:

1. In advance
Staff are expected to invite speakers for a free slot in the seminar diary, arrange and confirm dates. Then through emailing Stuart the diary will be updated. Seminar Series is to be held on Mondays at 1pm, room booking to be confirmed.

2. On the day
Seminar Room 3A142. Please allow speakers to allow speakers to familiarise themselves with the room and get PowerPoint presentations loaded. 3A142 is well equipped with presentation aids, slide and overhead projection equipment.

A trip to the Meadowpark pub after the presentation and discussion is suggested after the talk as this would be a nice way of finishing the day. It also provides an opportunity for students to talk to the speaker less formally.

3. After the event
Expenses claim forms will be available for the Host to give to the speaker.
