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.
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 17 years' experience in senior roles in the HE sector, I appreciate the challenges facing researchers to realise and demonstrate research impact, together with their concerns about accurately communicating findings.
Walcott Communications offers a mix of strategic consultancy, institutional reviews and impact evaluation, alongside training workshops and facilitation services to plan, support, track and evaluate the journey from research through to knowledge exchange and eventual 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 maximise opportunities to achieve social and economic impact of research findings and provide ongoing monitoring and evaluation reviews.
