Let's Work Together
Everyone's science is unique and you have your own science story. You may already know your audience or you may wish to refine your storytelling focus. We will work collaboratively to ensure that you are receiving the support and assistance you need.
Whether it is one-on-one consultation or a group workshop, for one day or over a series of days, or a longer term arrangement, we will work within your budget and capability to develop a plan for delivery and presentation of your message. All services can be uniquely combined and adjusted to meet your storytelling requirements.
I look forward to hearing your science story.
Presenting Your Science
Communicating effectively to one person or many is the basis for presenting your science to any audience.
Learn classical and contemporary verbal and non-verbal communication strategies.
Helpful for grant funding, board, investor, philanthropy, university presentations and much more!
Individual or group workshops
Preparing for the Media
More often, you may be called upon to speak to the media about your science. It can be a daunting experience, but media training will get you well on you way to interacting with not only traditional journalists and media confidently and competently.
I can help you contextualise the role of the media understand not only what you should be saying but why as well as the value of social media and how this broaden the scope of you sees your science.
Whether focusing on a specific science topic or project or highlighting an organisation or team, video is a useful addition. It is a very powerful visual medium and compliments many situations where your science can be showcased.
Video length is usually shorter and succinct. It provides both visual and audio context to projects. It adds contemporary flair to grant funding submissions and philanthropic, awards and industry presentations.
Conveying Controversial Science
There are elements of science, health and innovation that may be communicated in a tactful and truthful manner that invites dialogue and understanding.
Controversial science is not always the controversy of the science but more the polarising effect it can have on the societal and cultural frames of the public.
How we present and speak to those areas can be formulaic. Creating consistency in messaging as well as active listening to ensure that as a presenter you are able to at times preempt concern and remain confident and consistent.
Public Speaking Preparation
Public speaking traditionally rates as one of the least favourite things to do. In fact, for some it is a great fear. It is also an integral part of letting the world know about your science.
Together, we will work on various verbal and non-verbal communication
strategies that will assist you to in preparing for that big presentation. You will learn timing, audience empathy and how to ensure your audience does not suffer from death by PowerPoint.
For an audience to be receptive to your message, you must appear confident. I will help you get there.
There may be other areas where I may assist you in telling your best science story. We can work together to ensure you achieve the outcome you are hoping for.
