Planning a pathway to impact
Come with an idea, leave with an impact pathway.
Want an easier way to manage and plan for the impact of your research? There is an increasing number of research funders requesting translation elements and wanting greater impact from the work that gets funded.
This full-day workshop will enhance your chances of translation and research impact through planning. During the session, you will consider possible collaborations, avenues and tools for dissemination, and strategies to evaluate your impact creation goals. We will work through how translation elements can be embedded in your current project or the planning of a new project or grant proposal.
This is not just another workshop where you sit, listen and leave! This is an activity-packed workshop that involves individual thinking, planning, discussing your strategies and getting an outcome before you leave the room. The session, designed for researchers and research support staff, will guide you through the process of developing your pathway to impact. We will determine the stakeholders required, strategies to gain access to the right people, managing your stakeholder relationships, dissemination and translation activities, and the creation of the indicators of impact for your project. Come with your idea, leave with an impact pathway or plan, and get follow-up support included.
This workshop is aimed at researchers, research leaders and administrators that are looking to develop stronger links to industry and other external stakeholders. It will help you plan your research pathway for optimum impacts.

Leave us your details so we can tell you when we will be running a workshop near you. We will never give your details to anyone and we promise not to send you endless information!
To examine our performance (impact), and to provide feedback regarding the value of the workshop to the individual and their organisation.
During the workshop participants will work on relevant elements for their own projects. Participants will leave with ideas and a plan of next steps to be undertaken.
Handouts, activity sheets and information. Participants will have a valuable resource to refer back to as they implement their new knowledge.
All workshops include a follow-up coaching session with each participant to cover any questions and concerns and to facilitate the implementation process.
Participants will use action items developed during the workshop to develop a purposeful and strategic plan. We make sure that time out for this workshop is not wasted but instead leveraged.
We went through a mentorship with Tamika, to guide us in working with impact, when supporting researchers in writing funding applications. She has worked with us on all levels, from high-level concepts, to specific applications. The process has been extremely valuable, and we are much better equipped than before, to support the researchers. Additionally, we became inspired to consider how to work with impact, beyond application writing.
I loved the way the Tamika and Cathie packaged up the creation and communication of impact into a neat pathway that I can remember and refer back to
Every researcher will benefit from learning about research impact to improve their research outcomes and articulate the usefulness of the research. I recommend this training!
Our participants has been provided with a great foundation of what Research Impact is and some practical steps that they can use to start to start to think about the impact pathways of their own research
Tamika is an excellent facilitator; really great, practical advice and processes, and really understands how research works and what funders and external audiences look for. Very much worthwhile – one of the best sessions I’ve done
This workshop provides a great session in learning the research impact and how to design and make it happen
Tamika was great! It was a very engaging workshop and almost everything was new or relevant to the my field of research. I learnt so much from participating in the workshop. Thank you!
The information provided was timely and highly accessible. Communicating impact is hard and the training provided will enable me to do this better.
As a phd student, I feel like the workshop was a timely guideline for me in translating research to a scientific community for upcoming days. Very well designed and well prepared workshop for ECRs.
This workshop give me many useful tips to manage efficiently my main social channels
The workshop was very helpful in getting me started on my social media journey
A great way to maximise your social media presence and identity in the most efficient time.
