Faculty workshop: Communicating the value of your research to a broad audience
Finding the right researcher, clinician or industry partner is the first step for a successful research collaboration, but it’s only half the challenge. Most failed connections are a result of a disconnect when trying to communicate the value in a partnership.
This workshop will address this challenge by teaching the importance of value propositions and communicating research in a way that makes it compelling for every audience.
Often referred to as the “elevator pitch,” you will have the opportunity to create one for your research that can be used at any social gathering, departmental meeting or professional conference.
This workshop is sponsored by FastForward, Office of Faculty Development and MICHR.
Date: Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020
Time: 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
