Whether you’re presenting to a room full of sponsors, working with community groups, or explaining complex ideas to a general audience, you are storytelling; and so both clarity and personal passion are key.
You'll learn how to express what drives you and your organisation, how to share your backstory and your research; profile your key people; even your stakeholders and their stories.
You'll also learn how to identify confusing jargon and communicate complex ideas clearly and simply. Bespoke training is more effective and memorable than one-size-fits-all, so all training is carefully tailored to the client's needs - Gretchen starts with getting to know what you do from the inside out.
Gretchen saved the day when we needed science communication/story telling training for researchers working on a particularly complex project. Gretchen took a group of reluctant scientists and gently brought out their personalities and best stories so that their dedication, research topic and expertise could be shared with a wider audience. It was quite awe inspiring to see her process, she obviously cares about each person's work and life story and listens so well as to find what is fascinating and relevant. Everyone loved working with her and gained new skills and confidence. - Vanessa Barrett, Science Communicator, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney
