This event is for participants on Findacure’s 2020-21 Patient Group Mentoring Programme only.

Findacure would love to invite you to our virtual closing celebration for the 2020-21 Patient Group Mentoring Programme.

This past year has presented a unique set of challenges for everyone and especially for those in the rare disease community. Whilst the last 12 months might not have been anything like we expected, we are so proud of the resilience and dedication show by our mentors and mentees during these these unprecedented times

Our closing celebration is an opportunity for mentees and mentors to reflect on the past year and share their experiences with the wider group. Attendees will be invited to give a quick-fire overview of the changes their organisation has seen in the last year, and what lies in store for the future of their patient group.

Alongside this, we’ll be including plenty of time for discussion, as well as running a short focus group to gather your thoughts on our programme.

New to presenting and looking for support? 

We know that presenting can be a daunting task, but with the proliferation of virtual conferences in the post-COVID world there has never been a better time to take the stage and spread the word about your work.

Each group attending this event will have the chance to take the stage and share their work with a friendly audience, and to make it even easier Findacure are willing to help.

We’ll be running some hour-long support sessions before the event, where you can join a couple of other mentees and a Findacure team member to discuss the finer points of presentations, including:

  • Designing the perfect PowerPoint
  • How to pick the right topic
  • Tips on public speaking and presentation delivery

And any other topic you would like to discuss! Just express your interest during registration and we’ll be in touch to arrange a session.
