Video-based interactive impact training for groups

Our video-based training offers an affordable way to access our world-leading expertise and resources. You get a pack with detailed instructions on how to run a 5-hour event using pre-recorded videos and planned group exercises, with an hour live question and answer session via Skype with Professor Mark Reed at the end of the session. 


What you get


  • Delivery pack with information about how to set up the room, print handouts, introduce the sessions and bring in Professor Reed via Skype 

  • Video downloads for each session

  • Handouts to print for each session

  • One-hour live question and answer session via Skype with Professor Reed

  • A free follow-up programme over five weeks, so participants can apply what they have learned in their research. They can work through these steps themselves from the handbook, but by signing up to take these steps online, they get access to extra material. 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."
