Presenting data: how to convey information most effectively seminar

Presenting data: how to convey information most effectively seminar

For information to drive change it must be interpreted and understood. 

Sometimes important messages are not actioned because they are not conveyed in a way which motivates change. In this seminar we discuss the importance of considering how to present data to your audience.  We give some clues on how data might be displayed and tips on how to avoid presenting data.  At the end of the day, we anticipate delegates will better understand different methods and techniques that can be used to present data in a way that can optimise impact.

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

We teach how to write clearly and succinctly, without sacrificing scientific accuracy. We teach you how to get your thoughts down clearly and how increase your efficiency as a writer. We teach how to write and design documents according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g. monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project problem that needs to be solved.

The Standard 2 Day Workshop

The writing workshops are usually presented as The Standard 2 Day Workshop. The modules cover all aspects of writing from discussing common problems, recommending efficient practices, improving writing style, reworking sentence structure and paragraph structure, and analysing section and whole report structure. We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review techniques.
