It's a bit of a running joke in our office that my staff don't listen to a word I say, and when I was a lecturer one student feedback form declared 'Dr Sutton is afflicted with an unfortunately monotone voice'. So I will be particularly attentive this July as I host 'The Psychologist presents at Latitude Festival', which is due to feature Professor Elizabeth Stokoe on 'How to talk so people listen'

Professor Stokoe certainly gripped the audience at the Society's Annual Conference, and our coverage on p.520 begins with a report and more from her. It was also great to hear her say that featuring in our pages in 2013 led to many rewarding and far-flung opportunities for public engagement and research. We are always on the look out for contributions, so do get in touch.

You will find lots more conference reports on our website, alongside other exclusive material. And there's even more in our iOS/Android apps for The Psychologist and the Research Digest. We are 'talking' on numerous channels: I hope you are tuning in and like what you hear.
