The sessions he will be delivering for University of Liverpool PGRs are:

VIVA SURVIVOR - The viva is the culmination of the PhD process: a lot of work has led to this point, but a feeling of anxiety can go hand-in-hand with the sense of achievement at completing one's thesis. For many PhD candidates the time leading up to the viva is filled with stress about the day, and uncertainty about what their examiners may ask or how to prepare. Viva Survivor is a session for postgraduate researchers close to submitting their thesis who want to gain insight on how to be well prepared for their viva.

PLANNING YOUR FINAL YEAR - The final year of PhD research can be difficult. Finishing research, thesis writing, viva preparations, job hunting – candidates have many different things to accomplish and balance. In this session, participants will be given practical tools and space to plan the time leading up to thesis submission and examination.
