Attend a session of ours
or arrange one at your location

Jean-luc is a popular invited speaker at top-notch universities
and international conferences for what are now classic lectures
(or related interactive workshops) on scientific communication,
visual structure, pedagogy, critical thinking, and other topics.
Interested in bringing Jean-luc to your campus or conference?
