Time is tight and people are busy, so how do you get an audience for YOUR research? This course will help you sum up your research in a two-minute - or 250-word - "elevator pitch" profile, which you can go on to use as a blueprint for all other communication, whether it's a biography on the university homepage, a media pitch or a letter to a policymaker or collaborator. You will learn how to engage audiences from the opening sentence, what to include (and avoid), and how to think about your research goals in a clearer, simpler way. The interactive session will give you an opportunity to find out what works for you... and what doesn't.

Research ensures policymakers can come up with evidence-based solutions to the most pressing real-world problems. But decision-makers are busy and don't have the time to wade through pages of dense academic prose that may be irrelevant to them. This course will explain how to communicate with policymakers in an appropriate - and timely - way so your work has the best chance of delivering impact. As a Co-Investigator of the International Public Policy Observatory, Matt will also share real world examples from a major live project, which aims to link global research on the social impacts of COVID-19 with UK policymakers.
