Crafting Your Verbal Business Card
“How do I answer the question ‘What do you do?’ so that it’s brief, memorable, authentic and engaging?”
Understandably, with complicated research this is challenging to do but well worth the effort and preparation. In this interactive workshop, participants develop an “elevator pitch” for professional networking contexts, that tells the story, captures the listener’s attention, positions the individual accurately, communicates passion for the topic and motivates the listener to want to hear more. Activities and exercises include working with a partner to “pitch” one’s research topic, identifying professional connections in the network, and sharing best practices for effective networking.

Your own online presence as a career boost
Social media and science – do they go together? How can I be heard and still appear professional? What goals can I achieve by presenting my research in social media?
XING, LinkedIN and Co. – a flood of platforms and social media on the one hand, the presentation of one’s own scientific personality on the other. This workshop helps participants to present themselves professionally and purposefully online. To this end, the central platforms will be presented and participants will learn how to use them in a targeted manner in order to achieve their professional goals.
Navigating Challenges and Building Resilience in Communication
“How can I keep calm and focused while communicating in stressful situations?” This workshop focuses on applying mindful communication principles to the way scientists correspond with others in academia (and beyond). These principles include setting an intention, being fully present, remaining open and non-judgmental, and relating to others with compassion. The participants will learn how to bring on a greater level of awareness to the two major components of communication: listening and speaking. The workshop gives the opportunity to discuss fear-factors in the research process and find practical solutions to navigate these challenges in a more proactive and positive direction.
Academic writing to stand out
“How can I make sure my paper stands out from the others…?” Excellent research is fundamental. But so is sharing it effectively with the broader academic community! This seminar supports participants in learning how to structure their academic writing so as to stand out from the crowd by producing writing that is clear, engaging and persuasive. Through its unique one-to one session offered on the second day of the workshop, this can be achieved for academic articles but also for policy briefs, media editorials or funding applications.
Running a remote session with poise
“Whose turn is it? … Do we have a connection problem? … Is anyone there?” – Running virtual meetings simply differs from having face-to-face dialogue. Besides handling technical issues, team communication is often challenging and can be met with competent moderation, solid documentation and pro-active feedback. Integrating interactive exercises, trainer input and discussion, this online workshop is designed to acquaint you with the Zoom Pro platform, enabling you to prepare, host, and revise professional virtual meetings.
