Presenting with impact
Online course

Our half day courses are the most popular, but we can also provide most courses as 1 hour, 90 minute and 2 hour stand-alone courses, or connect these together into a series of sessions running over a few weeks or months. Set up a call to discuss how we can adapt this course to your needs.

Our online courses are just as interactive as any face-to-face training. They are specially designed so you get more engagement in ways that are not possible when everyone is in the same room together. Online courses are a great way to keep colleagues connected and inspired.

Since it was introduced in 2013, this course has become the most widely used resource to train researchers in impact around the world, having been used by over 200 institutions in 55 countries to date. 



Course Description

This session will give you practical skills and confidence to deliver presentations that drive action and leave a lasting impression. Learn from research on what makes a compelling presentation, including insights from TED talk speakers, and consider how you can have just as much impact face-to-face and online. Discuss tips on dealing with nerves and increasing your confidence as a public speaker. Finally, consider alternative talk structures, select one, and work on a script for a talk of your own, about your research. Share your talk in small groups and get peer feedback, before discussing what you learned in plenary, and watching a showcase of video elements that can add impact to a talk. As part of the session you will receive a hard copy* and a PDF copy of the second edition of The Research Impact Handbook.

*Available when you book half a day's worth of courses or more
