The Eureka Effect:

Communicating with the media and key stakeholders

From media and the general public to VCs and government stakeholders, there are a number of lay audiences whose opinions can have a disproportionate impact on the course of a project. So how do you get these audiences on side if they don’t understand the science or technology behind your work?

Communicating with simplicity is difficult to master, but the results are powerful. That’s because great communication is about much more than just conveying information: it’s about connecting with an audience.

Our workshop explores some of the communication tools that can enable you to make a positive connection with any audience.
