and develop the presentational aspects of their
lecturing. Those wishing to book a place should contact

Lecturing to Conferences

Friday, 12 June, 9.15 a.m.–2 p.m.

This seminar will focus on the performance dimension of
addressing a conference audience. Led by Mr Steward
Theobald, an external consultant with expertise in speech
and drama, the seminar will address the differences and
similarities between conference and undergraduate
audiences and will give some guidance on microphone
technique. The main component of the seminar, however,
will be devoted to an exploration of the vocal demands of
lecturing to a conference audience and the positive
things you can do to ensure that you are fit for the
challenge. There will be lecture, discussion and
demonstration as well as participative exercises to
enhance techniques in relaxation, breathing, resonance,
projection, articulation and modulation.

Audio-Visual Aids to Lecturing

Tuesday, 23 June, 9.30 a.m.–1 p.m.

Audio-visual aids can be used to stimulate interest,
extend retention of information and increase
accessibility and understanding of your subject matter. A
range of colleagues will introduce you to a variety of
audio-visual aids, from the slide projector to the video
CD. You will have the opportunity to try out the
equipment for yourself as well as demonstrate ways of
using it which add new dimensions to the presentation of
your lectures.

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the
University, was established in 1988. The company has been
formed to exploit know-how arising out of research funded
by the UK Government through the Research Councils and
funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The
function of the company is to ensure that the results of
research bring rewards to Oxford, and to the inventors,
who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums and/or
royalties for the use of know-how arising out of
research. Isis also exploits the intellectual property of
the University by setting up individual companies using
venture capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals who
wish to exploit the results of research supported by non-
Research Council sources, when there are no prior
conditions on the handling of the intellectual property
rights. Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-
seedcorn fund for paying the costs of protecting
intellectual property rights and for taking work to a
stage where its potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new
ideas can be developed for market requirements. The
company has established the Oxford Innovation Society for
major industrial companies, so that they can have a
window on Oxford technology and an opportunity to license
and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is
available. Please contact the above address, or the
telephone and fax numbers given below.

Members of the University should contact the Managing
Director if they wish to take advantage of the services
that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)72411; fax: (2)72412.)

Seeking investment?

Are you thinking of starting a new company or do you have
a growing company and need investment? Isis Innovation
and the Oxfordshire Investment Opportunity Network are
holding a joint event on Tuesday, 30 June, where you
could put forward a proposal to potential investors.
Further information may be obtained from Bhee Bellew at
Isis Innovation (telephone: (2)72411, e-mail:
bhee.bellew@isis.ox.ac.uk).
