Requesting workshops and presentations to your group

I have presented numerous short speeches, seminars, and workshops in Asia, Europe, and Africa for Professors, PhD Candidates, Research and Education Policy Makers of universities, Conferences, etc.

I am available anywhere in the world to present commentaries, 1 to 3-day workshops or courses on scientific writing, publication ethics, publication ideas for publishing high quality journal papers, research ethics, along with methods of avoiding low quality and hijacked journals and misleading metrics.

I am not going to bore you with all of the success stories here, but having said that, I have never seen anyone fall asleep when I speech in a workshop or seminar. Indeed, I am not a lecturer or someone who dictates a speech, but more someone who leads the discussions in my seminars and elicits, or encourages the attendants to talk and discuss things with each other in the group. I simply manage the discussions, and of course, I use the opportunity to share my experiences with them and at the same time, learn from them.
