Founder & Science Communicator
It only takes seconds to make a lasting first impression.
Catalan Group is a unique science communication organisation with a twist. Instead of acting as a reporter of science news, we interpret your science stories. We partner with scientists, researchers, technical professionals and start-ups to enable them to present their own science to wider audiences to generate momentum for current projects, to fund new business ideas or to gain public understanding and trust.
Well presented science, research, technical and health messages are a mixture of concepts that are spoken in an expert and credible way but are understandable to the audience. Catalan Group will help you know your audience and then cater a message that they will hear, understand and act upon.
Striking a balance of credibility, with an
understanding from your audience can lead to social acceptance and trust of your science along with industry support and grant success.
For over 25 years I have worked across health, science, research and innovation to create messages and guide others to successfully present their own science.
We can work together to tell your story well.
You should be able to tell your own story
“The success of your presentation will be judged not by the knowledge you send but by what the listener receives.” – Lilly Walters

"While making a documentary film for cinema I found Aimee's communication style to be caring, helpful, and professional at all times. I was so impressed by her manner that I asked her to appear in the documentary. She was completely articulate, engaging, and comfortable in front of the camera and an absolute pleasure to work with."

Dying to Live
"Science communication is essential for the development of a successful research program, but I found media a daunting prospect. Aimee did everything. I could completely trust her guidance and my work has clearly benefitted from her expertise. Her professionalism and experience gave me the confidence to elevate my work and significantly improve my research profile."

“Aimee's ability to analyse science data yet focus on the personal and emotive has become part of my science foundation when communicating with others. The skills and tools she helped me to develop have assisted me as a research scientist and as a one who delivers key messages to the public, staff and other scientists.”
