What's the talk about?
Today's world is full of misinformation, myths and mystery - so how do you make sure you're not taken for a ride or (even worse) propagating false 'facts' yourself?
Tannice's talk will briefly cover why we buy into false beliefs, the context behind faith in the seemingly spurious claims of quack 'therapists', cures and snake oil salespeople and how we're all guilty of believing what we want to sometimes. Open your mind to the possibility your brain might fall out and then stitch it all back together with Tannice's quick guide to silliness, stupidity and scepticism.
Tannice was a Founding Member of the South East Skeptics Society as well as Host of Guildford Skeptics in the Pub for three and a half years. She takes over Tunbridge Wells Skeptics in the Pub, with her husband, Jacques Hemming.... this month!
Tannice has spoken across the country on the subject of Autism including the 2012 Edinburgh Skeptics on the Fringe (and Tunbridge Wells in August 2012, where she met Jacques for the first time!) and featured on a panel at the popular science and skepticism event, QED.
She is a currently an Assistant Editor for the Skeptic Magazine and her specialist interests involve vaccinations, psychology and learning disabilities.
