Managing your message: Media skills for researchers

A higher media profile has a direct impact on the awareness of TRU both nationally and internationally. The work of our researchers is vital, and ought to be shared and celebrated.

The role of TRU’s communications team is to facilitate this knowledge transfer, and to ensure our researchers are engaged in — and leading — national and international conversations.

Facilitated by Diana Skoglund, Director of Media Relations and Communications, and Danna Bach, Communications Officer with Research and Graduate Studies, this workshop is designed to provide researchers with best practices for engaging with media to ensure their messages  are represented fairly and accurately across all mediums.

A professional photographer will be on hand to provide researchers in attendance with professional head shots, ideal for websites, conference presentations and more.

Lunch will be provided. No RSVP required, see you there!
