PhD+ Research Communication Level 1, Session 2: Purpose and Medium

In Person (Register for Location)

Now that you know your audience – their interests and motivations – what message do you want to communicate to them? In this session we will learn how to determine your own goals and find the best medium through which to achieve that goal. We will use the Message Tool to frame your messages in ways that connect with your target audience.
