We seek feedback after all our training, and on a number of occasions have recorded 100% of respondents describing the training as “Excellent”. These are some of the things people say about us:

Useful and relevant

Very insightful and a good way to discuss and address how to disseminate our research better

Very useful. I would encourage more academics to take this course.

Practical and “hands-on”

A really useful event, with just the right mix of theory and practice.
Professor Tim Bale, Politics, Queen Mary, University of London

The opportunities to stage an interview were fantastic, especially seeing the improvement in every single person in the group. The comments/analysis were constructive, encouraging and helpful. The sense of experience in the media came through in every moment of the session.

The whole seminar was so informative, excellently balanced, kept the attention of everyone at all times! The trainers were very friendly, approachable, and experience just pours out! Great, yet not intimidating, would recommend to everyone.

The on camera interviews were the most useful for me, especially as Lily and Tim had done so  much research into our subjects- it made everything much more personal and specific to our individual needs”. Francesca Peschier, PhD candidate in scenography, University of the Arts, London

I was impressed with the level of preparation of the trainers. It makes you give of your best if you notice they’ve really read up on your research
Margot Saher, Post Doctoral Research Associate, School of Geography, Plymouth

Constructive and supportive

I really enjoyed today. I thought it would be quite intimidating, but the relaxed, friendly atmosphere made it less scary!
Mandy Edwards, PhD candidate in Health Sciences, University of South Wales

I found it extremely enjoyable and very educational. The atmosphere was much more relaxed than I had expected which meant the practical work was less intimidating. Very clear and well-paced, gave us insights into “tricks of the trade” and extremely valuable tips.
Dr Alexandra Pitman, Research Department, Mental Health Sciences, UCL   

And enjoyable

Very enjoyable and practical day. Knowledge gained will also be applicable for use at conferences and vivas.
