A free follow-up programme over five weeks, so participants can apply what they have learned in their research.

Each week consists of a 6-minute video with accompanying text and tasks
Mark replies to email queries from all members of the group after the training to troubleshoot problems and ensure they can put what they’ve learned into practice.

"Mark’s training stimulated new discussions and ideas about what impact our researcher’s work can have, and demystified the process of achieving impact. His innovative approach, incorporating pre-recorded videos and live Q&A with Mark, means that the training is a highly cost effective way of delivering high quality training to a large number of staff. Our intention to maintain our relationship with Mark is a testament to his expertise in both impact and training delivery."
