Walcott Communications enables researchers to develop the skills, tools, techniques and mindset to create the essential relationships and opportunities to generate meaningful social and economic impact from research.
Today researchers are expected to understand and be able to identify pathways to impact, to communicate the outcomes of research to the right audiences, in the right way and at the right time, whilst also putting in place mechanisms to capture evidence of their impact journey.
Walcott Communications can help you to develop the right impact strategy, support delivery of pathways to impact and provide vital training and advice.
Despite the uncertain times we continue to support authors and universities as they prepare their REF impact case studies. So far, the postponement of the REF 2021 submission date has not stemmed demand so please contact us if your HEI needs assistance with impact case study preparation and we will reply as quickly as possible.
I founded Walcott Communications in 2010 in recognition of a need to provide a straightforward approach to communication and knowledge exchange that helps to build the skills of researchers in the higher education sector.
After 15 years' experience in senior roles in the sector I appreciate the challenges facing researchers to realise and demonstrate research impact, together with their concerns about accurately communicating findings.
Walcott Communications can meet your needs by offering a mix of strategic consultancy, training workshops, facilitation and academic 'translation' services to both assist and support in the transition from research to impact.
Walcott Communications offers a mix of strategic consultancy for higher education institutions, training and support in audience communication and knowledge exchange skills for researchers. I also work directly with research teams to develop and implement plans to achieve long-term social and economic impact of research findings and provide ongoing monitoring and evaluation reviews.
I can individually tailor training sessions and would be happy to discuss options.
