Who we work with

We provide communication training, coaching and mentoring for researchers in science, technology, engineering, life and social sciences.

Our clients include universities and higher education organisations, research instututes, intergovernmental organisations, NGOs and non-profit organisations, membership organisations, conference organisers. In addition, we’ve worked with hundreds of individual scientists and researchers from organisations around the world in our open workshops and one-to-one coaching.

We’d love to work with you, too.

Collaborating with Suzanne to organize a virtual workshop on the social media landscape in 2023 for Boston University researchers was a pleasure and a resounding success. From the initial planning stages to the workshop's execution, Suzanne’s expertise and passion for science communication were evident at every step. Her attention to detail and consideration of the diverse audience at BU ensured that the content was not only intellectually stimulating but also accessible to researchers with varying backgrounds. Suzanne’s enthusiasm proved contagious, creating an atmosphere of active participation and shared learning. I look forward to future collaborations!

Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Wednesday! I learned so much! I applied the model you introduced on Thursday when a colleague sent a request to join a proposal. I started to write as I normally would, but realized that it was just too complicated. Another colleague told me he thought what I wrote (using the model) was pefect to set up the proposal. Thank you so much!

It's been a long time since I have enjoyed a training workshop as much as I did this one! Suzanne took a lot of time to get to know each of our group during the training, quickly spotting where our strengths lay and helping us develop skills in new areas. She struck a good balance between theory and discussion, and I particularly appreciated the time she gave us for group work and time to try out new skills alone. She was full of energy and positivity, and made me feel welcome and valued throughout, even when she put me on the spot in role plays. Highly recommended!

This is a quick note to thank you for the workshop yesterday on dataviz and data storytelling. I've really been struggling with how to bring  my research to life and I feel much better equipped to do this now. The first session on visualization options prompted me to think about using graphical formats that I'd not considered before. The session on design opened my eyes to how much placement, colour and layout matter, and the step by step examples that you gave made me much more aware of what a difference this makes. It was a lot to take in, but with your detailed notes, I feel more confident that I can tell better narratives with the data that I want to present. I would recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to get a better understanding of how to design and present data to have more impact.

This workshop was great fun. I learned loads about perspective and how I tend to communicate, and hope to be able to use this knowledge to communicate better with our international students.

I just devoted my first post-semester window of time to following your advice. Amazingly helpful. Joined relevant social media channels. Bulked up my profile info on LinkedIn. Will definitely embrace your other tips going forward.

It was useful to think more strategically about elevator pitches and how I could create something generic for "everyday" use as well as something tailored for different situations like meetings. The opportunity to plan and share elevator pitches was good, as it gave me an idea of other styles and approaches. The detailed individual feedback was unexpected, but great.

This was a good refresher on best practice planning and design for posters. I particularly enjoyed the sessions on tools for choosing colour palettes, which I have since used in other communication materials, and the discussion about online and virtual conferences, which was an eye-opener for me during COVID. Thank you, Suzanne!
