Training for scientists

The training programs of Hertz, training for scientists are especially developed for PhDs, postdocs and professors. They learn to work more effectively and with more fun, and also to be able to work better together with their colleague-scientists. The training programs are purposeful and informal, with a variety of working methods.
As a participant, you are confronted with practical exercises and you will receive personal feedback. After the training program or workshop, you have obtained new insights and helpful guidance for your daily practice. We exclusively work with senior trainers who have worked as scientists themselves and/or are very experienced.

Brigitte Hertz has more than 20 years experience in developing educational programs and in organizing conferences and symposia. She very much likes to think and work with you to carefully realize an effective and original conference. She also is a very involved facilitator and can chair your department’s ‘day in the woods’.
Key words: clear goals and results, creative angles, pleasant atmosphere and use of original material.

Imposter Syndrome

I really like how much attention the trainers pay to what it is like for the students to be taking this course. The trainers use a variety of interactive tasks, focusing on students gaining practical experience, and provide multiple breaks throughout each day. This makes the course highly engaging and has created a bond within the group.

Training for (Assistant/Associate) Professors

I can not think about any other feedback so far except for sincere appreciation. Big bold thank you to both of the trainers, I like the whole design of the course, including its contents, social part, interactive part and the micro-breaks.
Very nice to sit together with other supervisors, especially with other ones who have experience as well. It really helps a lot, and these themes are great themes to discuss and get feedback on from an experienced trainer!
