UPDATE (18-Nov-2011): this workshop is now fully booked, but we will be running another. Add yourself to the waiting list for the next one.
If you want to gain media interest in your research, or present your work to non-academic audiences, this is the workshop for you. You will develop your presentation skills for business collaborations and conferences, as well as media work. Previous participants rated this workshop very highly:
“ I liked the way the trainers actually researched everyone’s topic in order to develop realistic media scenarios. That was great”
“Super, you sensitively guided us through the more nerve-racking moments of the course. I now feel much more confident thinking about media issues”
“If you are offered the chance to attend this programme then don’t procrastinate. Go for it!”
This workshop is designed for 2nd and 3rd year doctoral researchers and research staff – researchers who already have some experience of presenting their research – and is not suitable for researchers in the early stages of their doctorate. Find out more and book your place.
This workshop is conducted by Media Players International, a partnership of two ex-BBC journalists with 35 years’ BBC experience between them. The facilitators aim to demystify the media, and help you to learn what the media want, how to identify and present “media-friendly” elements in your research, how to formulate key messages and deal with difficult questions in interviews. The workshop is interactive throughout and culminates in an on-camera interview which is tailored to your research area.
