Learn to pitch your research to employers outside academia

For PhD fellows and Postdocs at AAU

Time

05.09.2017 kl. 13.00 - 15.30

Description

 

Learn to pitch complex messages in a short time, and thus for example become more aware of how to communicate your research to potential employers outside academia.

Caroline Bolmeson is a former diabetes-researcher who now works as a communication specialist at Lund University in Sweden and her own company Molly Communication. She is specialized in the TED-speakers’ presentation tools (www.ted.com), how to pitch complex messages in a short time, and the use of storytelling.

At this workshop you will become acquainted with these tools and get the opportunity to work with them yourself. This workshop is a possibility for PhDs and Postdocs to get inspiration, raise the bar, and communicate more clearly and with conviction.
