What is this course about?

Communication is crucial in any career, but how do we ensure we leave an impression? Researchers discover how to ‘connect the dots’ between effective communications, successful funding applications, societal impact, and career progress. Learn impactful communication tools and techniques used in academia, business, and the dramatic arts. Practice communicating vividly about research and its purpose using storytelling and shared experiences without confusing jargon to connect with all types of audiences.

This workshop is delivered by external training provider, Skillfluence, funded by the University’s UKRI Impact Acceleration Account Programme.
