Event description

Media and communication training workshop

Our media and communication training workshop will help you find the story in your research and learn how to achieve media coverage that is true to your science AND engages your audience.

  • Meet local journalists and learn how to ensure your research is reported accurately.
  • Practice being interviewed 'on tape' and in front of camera by journalists.
  • Find out how the media works and how you can make it work for you.

Gain confidence in talking about your research so that it has impact with media, government, industry and other stakeholders.

This is a full-day practical workshop where you will learn how to effectively communicate about your work to the public, stakeholders, government, industry, and the media.

You’ll get the chance to do practice interviews and get immediate feedback.

Conveying the complexity of your research, your life’s work, into a 30-second grab for the media or one-minute elevator pitch to funders or even a Vice Chancellor can be hard. The solution is to shape the essence of your science into a story. 

Journalists are fantastic story tellers. By spending the day meeting, talking, and working with journalists from television, print and radio you will learn how to tell your story in a way that works for the media. 

With the guiding hand of two experienced science communicators, you will learn how to ensure this also stays true to the science. Read more.

Cost is $800 +GST per person. This includes morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea
