A lot of hard work and time goes into conducting research but sadly some research findings are never read or translated into practice.

It's tempting to think that if you are clever and work hard people will notice and shower you with rewards. Tempting but probably not true.

Self-promotion of your research and self is key.

Join Hugh Kearns from ithinkwell for a workshop to learn strategies for:

  • Developing a communication strategy
  • Developing and pitching your message
  • Dealing with media and using new media
  • Asking for what you want
  • Using convincing language
  • Self promotion
  • Networking, mentoring and collaborating
  • Putting yourself in the spotlight
  • The imposter syndrome
  • Dealing with the discomfort of it all

Registration is restricted to IOMRC partners only.
