Workshops coming up: “Creativity in Research” and “Influencing, negotiating and networking”

AdairWe have a treat for all our postgraduate research students and early career researchers on 4th November, in the shape of excellent trainer, broadcaster and consultant Dr Adair Richards.

Adair will be running two workshops, in the morning Creativity in Research, and in the afternoon Influencing, negotiating and networking.

Creativity in Research is an engaging and experiential course, aimed at helping researchers learn academically-verified creativity strategies. It will be of use to anybody who wants to improve their ability to think creatively, see problems from different angles, or use their intuition more effectively. It will introduce a variety of quick and also more structured creativity frameworks that can be applied in many aspects of the postgraduate research process. For more information please see the booking link.

Feedback from 2013 for “Creativity in Research”:
“Good balance of theory and practical application, it applied to the complexity of work and life, not just my research”;
“It helped me see things in different ways”
“The range of creative activities were great”

CollaborationIn the afternoon Adair is running a new workshop – Influencing, negotiating and networking.

Influencing, negotiating and networking is an interactive and innovative workshop, providing both an overview of the leading academic theories in these fields as well as practical experience and insight into developing your own professional interpersonal skills. The format of the course will include a number of practical exercises, seminars, reflection time and group work. It will be of particular interest to researchers who want to increase the positive impact they have on their colleagues and broaden their professional network.

There are currently some spaces left in both workshops, but hurry as they are likely to fill up soon! Click on the links above to book or for more information.
