Thu, September 20, 2012 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM See description. Free. You have an issue you’re passionate about – and you know all the information to back it up – but how do you convey that message to an audience that will promote action? You might need different goals and messages for government officials, funders, or even family and friends.
Here’s your chance to learn and practice effective communication to different audiences, with an online twist with Andy Torr.
Andy Torr is a communications strategist in the Office of the Vice President Research at UBC. He specializes in explaining complex scientific concepts to general audiences, and he develops targeted messaging about UBC research for government, industry, funding agencies, peer universities, and the public.
The panel will start at 7 pm but we’ll have mingling (with BEvERages) at 6:30. Please RSVP at: http://scienceonlinevancouver.com/events/2012/09/writing-for-action/.
