“Dawn took time to individually look at our pitch deck and our one-pager and offer substantial and insightful comments.... It was 10X more than we had bargained for. Dawn brings this wealth of knowledge and experience that is unparalleled. Usually, the feedback we get is a mile wide and an inch thick. With Dawn, it's a mile wide and a mile deep.”
Knowledge Translation Training
Group programs connect you with a community of peers, like-minded researchers who want to go beyond sharing information and learn how to communicate for impact.
Together, you'll explore the art and science of clearly communicating your research findings to audiences outside the academy. But don't worry about getting bogged down in theory. The workshops are light on content and heavy on practice and personalized feedback. You'll leave with specific skills you can use to navigate the communication situations you face.

Communicating for Health Innovation
Improve your ability to help practitioners put your clinical research into action. Discover communication strategies and techniques to improve uptake in the field.
“I can't say enough how above and beyond this program [Communicating with Government and Industry] went beyond my expectations. I have taken some knowledge translation courses, but what I really liked was how Dawn had everything organized in terms of different formats--tips and tricks for blogs, infographics, presentations, you name it.
The part I really liked was the personalized feedback. Dawn was very approachable and got to know what all our projects were, and she has a ton of experience, so she can relate to different things.
If someone is looking for a program to make your research live, I would absolutely recommend this.”
