Learn how to communicate your science clearly and concisely in a way that will resonate for any audience at this hands-on American Geophysical Union (AGU) communications workshop hosted by the Consortium for Ocean Leadership and the John A Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Professional Development Committee.

At this interactive workshop, you will learn how to communicate science to people in your community, policy makers, and the media, in a relevant, engaging, and memorable way. You will learn how to identify the right group for you to reach out to, how to create an effective message about your research/work, and how to tailor your presentation for a specific audience. You will also learn active listening skills, have the chance to practice public speaking, and receive feedback from communication experts and your peers.

Knauss Fellows of all communications- and policy-experience levels are welcome. Lunch will be provided. Advance sign-up is required and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. A draft agenda can be found HERE.
