Talk like TED
This is a fun, fast-paced workshop for a team Away Day with a difference! Using techniques from the wildly-popular TED Talk format, your team will build their ability to communicate with greater clarity of ideas, better structures and stronger arguments. We encourage group collaboration and build up a toolkit of individual skills over the course of a highly interactive day. And everyone gets the chance to present – removing the fear factor from presentations and encouraging everyone to think about their audience the next time they stand up to speak. Help your team to view presentations in a whole new light – you can be sure that after a day of Talk like TED, team meetings will never be the same again!
Leadership Communication for Impact and Influence
Communicating for Research Impact
With an increased emphasis on the civic impact of research, University research strategies are adapting to encourage greater involvement with social, cultural and economic institutions. Public engagement is a pathway to Research Impact. Capacity building for researchers in public engagement is now a source of strategic benefit to universities and research institutes.
