Human Capital Network Webinar: Translating Your Work for Important Audiences
Describing your work clearly and accurately to the media, policy-makers, and other potential supporters can greatly expand your impact. But in “translating” your work, how can you avoid watering it down? And how can you relate it directly to your audience’s needs?
On December 10, 2013, join this live chat with alumni from Human Capital programs who have expertise in reaching these audiences and learn:
- The essential elements of an “elevator speech” and how to adapt it for any discussion or presentation of your work
- How to discuss your work with reporters, accurately and in terms they’ll understand
- How to survive—and even thrive—in a “media blitz”
- How to relate your work to the needs and concerns of policy-makers
- How to avoid the most common errors in presenting research to policy-makers
