Speaker: Dr Sarah Ashworth, Researcher Development Officer, University of ManchesterHow to write to get what you want
Writing effectively is a skill that it is essential to master for a successful scientific career in academia or in industry, but not all writing is the same. You can be the best scientist in the world, but if you can’t communicate your science to others it becomes meaningless, it has no value. You might have the best project idea in the world but if you can’t convince others to back it, it will never realise its potential. This session will give you some hints and tips on how to write, whatever the audience, and whatever its purpose. Gain insights into how to write to secure grants, update stakeholders on your project progress or even apply for a new role.
