Seven strategies for scientists to communicate their research and create a brand

About this video

With societal impact being the primary goal of research, asking researchers to create a brand for themselves might sound counter-intuitive. Yet, in order to create societal impact, researchers have to highlight not just their research, but also themselves. Not only is this recognition well deserved, it also makes the research visible to benefit a wider public.

In this webinar, Joshua Barham, winner of the 2017 Reaxys PhD prize, will share why researchers should care about self-branding and the best practices to build a personal brand as a researcher to get your research to stand out. He will share tips from his own experience on how to utilize already available tools and resources and get noticed.

You will come away with an understanding of how to maximise your career by standing out from the crowd.
