Organised by
RSC Marketing Interest Group
We arrange early evening talks with a general theme of "marketing chemistry", highlighting practical applications of chemicals and chemical services across the range of chemical disciplines, industry sectors and government activities. These talks are a great way of seeing what goes on in other parts of chemistry and what other chemists do for a living.  Our events include a cheese and wine social to allow time to catch-up with old friends, make new contacts, and share our passion for chemistry.  This is a general interest talk so the invitation has also been sent to local section members.  We also welcome 6th form and university students who want to find out more the business of chemistry.
