Why we’re different

We’re not actors or “career-trainers”.

Our team is made up of individuals who have been professional communicators in a variety of roles, as well as communicators with academic and research backgrounds. We know what it’s like to navigate the academic system, understand the “publish or perish” mindset, and thanks to our decades of experience in the world of communication, we know how important it is to be able to share research to different people with different approaches designed to meet the needs of researchers AND their audiences.

We know how to work with diverse groups of people for whom English may not be a first language, and in every training programme that we offer, we have a dual purpose: first, to enable participants to build specific communication skills for their needs, and second, to offer them a toolbox of techniques that they can use throughout their careers, in different contexts, in any language.

Many of us have lived and worked internationally, which means that we know what it’s like to view the world from many different perspectives. 

We understand the challenges that scientists, researchers, and academics face because we’ve been there too. This adds a real-world dimension—and value—that few other training companies can offer.

We’re small and agile, but when we’re presented with complex projects that need a larger team or expertise that we don’t have in-house, we draw on our network of associates in Europe and internationally to bring in the skills and brains we need.
