Design a comms plan

Whether you are just starting out, mid-way through your research, or have just reached your conclusions, it’s never too late to start communicating your research and exploring what is available.

Adopting an integrated and strategic plan online and offline will help generate momentum. In turn, this will increase your chance of reaching the audience who can benefit the most from your work.

“My favourite aspect of the workshop was the networking and the breakout rooms to work on the practical application of new knowledge. I also liked the simple, clear guidelines for how to start thinking about comms plan steps.”
