Whether standing by your conference poster, at a professional networking event, or in the pub, the question is the same: "So, what is it that you do?" With that crucial 2 minute elevator pitch answer ready, you'll never say "ummmm" again!

Workshop

You know your research is interesting and important. But how do you explain it quickly and get others interested and enthusiastic rather than confused and bored? We will show you how to identify and communicate the key features of your research in a range of situations where time is short and the person you’re talking to is not an expert - whether it’s Bill Gates in a lift, or your great aunt at a family party.

Have a research project in mind and we’ll help you develop a perfect elevator pitch to bring it to life.

Presenter

This EQUATOR workshop will be led by Dr Jen de Beyer. Jen is CSM’s science writing, dissemination, and publication specialist. She’s here to help your research reach its full potential through clear, complete writing and communication skills that help you reach your target audience. She develops resources on how to write fantastic health research articles and teaches science writing skills through the UK EQUATOR Centre

Audience

This free workshop is open to University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes staff and students. Please book your spot by emailing Caroline Struthers (caroline.struthers@csm.ox.ac.uk).
