  • It is very easy for research scientists to fall into the trap of trying to make a case for their research without showing the impact of the same in a convincing way. To do this effectively, we must tell compelling stories. Science shows that audience retention increases dramatically when we tell stories. If there is a “plot” to be examined, people are more likely to remain engaged.

    During this inspirational training session, Dr. John Greenhoe will show how researchers can get traction through anecdotal messages that attract human interest. A veteran foundation professional with a creative writing background, Greenhoe is uniquely qualified to show how storytelling can drive home the importance of your research.

    This 60-minute on-demand training will also include examples that show how stories can be employed to showcase research in grant reports, proposals and cases for support. You will examine several storytelling examples that will get the attention of funders and significantly increase your chances for success. If you are a researcher looking for innovative techniques that can attract new sources of funding, this “can’t miss” Webinar is perfect for you.
