Invite Dr. Gertrude Nonterah to speak. 

I am available as a PAID speaker, expert panelist or workshop facilitator for the following topics or similar:

Personal Branding for PhDs & Academics

According to NPR and CNBC, over 70% of jobs are filled via personal branding and networking and NOT by applying for a long litany of jobs online. The goal of this presentation is to help Ph.D. students and Ph.Ds build powerful personal brands that have jobs and recruiters scrambling over them, instead of the other way around.

Career Paths for STEM Students/Majors

In my former role as an educator at a community college, I found that STEM students are not always clear on career paths available to them beyond traditionally well-known paths like medicine, pharmacy, and engineering. In this talk, I want to show students how to use their skills in lucrative yet lesser-known career paths.

Social Media and Thought Leadership

I’ve often given this presentation to early to mid-career academics and professionals who want to learn how to use social media to build career-building thought leadership.

Medical Communications As A Career Path

Since 2018, I have been a medical communications professional. During this talk, I share my journey into medical communications and how people can transition into a career in medical communications.
