Coaching

Communicating science is more than just stripping out the jargon and re-ordering the text.

Elaine will coach your staff in the art of effective science communication, either 1:1 or in small groups.

Effective communication involves learning about your audience and tailoring your style and content to their knowledge and interests.

Instead of trying to ‘dumb it down’, a great communicator strips out unnecessary content and focuses on the key messages. By concentrating on the audience, rather than on the science, they find points of emotional connection between their reader and the content.

Elaine will take your staff through a logical process that teaches them how to create effective presentations and documents that impact your audience and achieve results.
