Impact-Focused Skills Development
We specialise in training that equips researchers with the tools, skills and confidence in the areas we’ve identified to be most directly linked to delivering increased levels of innovation, knowledge exchange and impact.
We focus on 3 key competency areas:
Effective communication is fundamental to delivering impact. Whether it’s translating research into simple language, delivering engaging presentations or being able to speak the “language of business”. We have a range of programmes that help make researchers more effective communicators.
The ability to translate research into commercial opportunity is more important than ever. There are proven tools, frameworks and processes that can be used to extract commercial value from research. We have a range of programmes to help researchers embark on their commercialisation journey with confidence.
It’s impossible to deliver meaningful impact without collaboration. Whether it’s engaging with partners, funders, customers, policymakers, the public or other researchers. We offer a range of programmes that teach researchers how to build and nurture valuable long-term relationships with key stakeholders.
We offer 3 key types of programmes, each designed to deliver specific objectives.
Most programmes can be delivered on-line or in-person.
SPARK programmes are quick-hit skills development programmes designed to help participants learn specific skills, frameworks or tools. They typically are delivered in 90-minute, ½ day or Full-Day formats and can be delivered in-person or on-line.
IMPACT programmes are deep-dive programmes that bring together multiple competency areas to focus on delivering specific outcomes and meaningful behaviour and mindset changes. They include on-demand learning, live workshops and speakers.
ACCELERATE programmes are highly focused programmes designed to help individuals and teams accelerate the development of a specific project. These programmes typically involve a combination of skills development and implementation coaching.
We offer bespoke programmes and services including custom training, facilitation and strategic consulting.
