Infection Control Matters

Mind your language! With Claire Kilpatrick and Martin Shovel

August 25, 2021

In this week's episode, Martin Kiernan talks to WHO Consultant Claire Kilpatrick and Martin Shovel, a writer, satirical cartoonist and communications coach who runs Creativityworks, an organisation that offers training and workshops in the art of communication (https://creativityworks.net/).
