We help the innovators find rewarding careers and commercialise their technology
I help you develop your PhD career and professional skills for jobs within and beyond academia
Developing bespoke careers training to upskill students, PGRs and academics
Delivering fundraising advice and services for pre-seed and seed-stage start-ups
I work with PhDs to give personalised career guidance and job application services in 1-2-1 and small group sessions.
Having worked in academia after my PhD and successfully jumped to industry, I can help you decide on your next career step and avoid the common mistakes PhDs face when job hunting.
I will help you deliver confident presentations, handle job interviews, and get a pay rise.
University Skills Training
I work with universities to deliver career talks, and training on commercial thinking and business skills to help upskill PhDs.
Whether you want your PGRs to become more confident, to raise more funding, or to help them land powerful careers, I give invited talks and tailored made sessions to help you achieve your target.

What People Say
"I have two staff in my team who are great scientists but jump to the technical bit far too quickly. Their writing has benefited greatly from Fawzi's training."
Data Team Manager, Naviguide
Fawzi Abou-Chahine is director of Chahine Communications.
Following my PhD in Chemistry and further research in energy technology, I pivoted towards raising funding for innovation. I spent the next decade working closely with individuals and businesses, to help them solve the personal and professional growth challenges they face, having experienced them myself. This is why I do what I do.
At the heart of my service is helping individuals and businesses communicate their ideas clearly and commercially, and helping individual innovators develop their confidence to land successful careers. I also regularly write articles on career development, you can find examples here.
