Specialist Engagement Training 

I am one of the most experienced Public Engagement trainers and evaluation experts in the UK. I have coached national award winners, consulted on REF Impact Case studies and delivered training as far afield as Asia and Africa.

 

I’ve worked with universities, charities and professional bodies to help their staff and students unlock their communication and engagement potential. From helping early career researchers take their first steps into Public Engagement through to expert advice on evaluation for REF purposes I can tailor my workshops and seminars to suit your needs.
