From the traditional elevator pitch to quick phone calls with policy makers, scientists must be able to represent their work and its importance in a quick yet impactful way in order to help other audiences understand the importance of science and research. When it comes to getting media attention for your work, influencing local policy makers, serving as an information resource, expanding your professional network, and many other situations, the ability to convey your work in a way people can connect with will make the difference between getting lost in the crowd and standing out. This workshop will arm scientists with the skills to have effective short conversations with a number of audiences. It also addresses how to communicate your work or skills in conference settings and at professional events. The tips discussed in this webinar may be particularly useful for early career scientists interested in networking, social media, and preparing for interviews.
