Absolutely. The Research Impact Accelerator is designed to benefit scholars and researchers from diverse disciplines. Our coaching approach is adaptable to your specific needs and research interests.
No worries at all. Many of our scholars will start with little to no public engagement experience. This program is designed to take you from where you are now and provide you with the skills, mindset, and confidence to excel in this area.
We understand that your time is precious. The program is structured to accommodate your schedule. One-on-one coaching is designed as a 3-month program, but can be shorter or longer depending on your goals. We work together to ensure that the time you invest yields tangible results.

We work hand-in-hand toward the goals you establish, providing ongoing support and accountability that help you achieve your goals.
Many scholars share similar concerns. Our program includes media training and communication skill development tailored to your comfort level. You’ll build confidence through practice and feedback. And we always emphasize doing what makes you comfortable.
Success varies by individual, but our outcome-driven program is dedicated to working towards the goals and outcomes you set. Our program provides the tools and knowledge needed for success; it’s up to you to apply them.
While it’s possible to see immediate improvements in your communication skills, lasting impact often takes time. We focus on building a strong foundation for long-term success, which includes setting achievable short-term goals.
Don’t worry; our program is designed to be user-friendly. We’ll walk you through any technical aspects and provide support as needed to help you succeed.

The Research Impact Accelerator isn’t just another coaching program; it’s a transformative journey designed specifically for scholars and researchers like you who are eager to make a meaningful impact beyond academia.
What sets us apart is our holistic approach. We cover every facet of unleashing your public voice, from building confidence, seamlessly integrating public scholarship into your research workflow, building a public profile, strategic communication, customized and up-to-date media training, impact measurement, and driving real change.
My journey as an academic was marked by the same challenges you face today, and that’s precisely why I am so passionate about helping you overcome them. I’ve been in your shoes, felt the frustration of untapped potential, and that’s what fuels my dedication to providing you with the tools, strategies, and support to confidently communicate your research to the world.
Public engagement is a powerful tool for a scholar, yet few graduate programs train scholars to effectively communicate research to anyone outside the academy.
And other training programs may focus only on building communication skills.
But here is what I believe….
You hold the power to make an impact: You don’t need another shiny framework, checklist, course, tool, or step-by-step guide. You just need to tune into your own wisdom and do the work.
Everyone’s path is different: Every scholars research interests are different, and every scholars communication style is very unique. We will work only in the space that makes you comfortable, where your communication skills can thrive and your research can make the most impact.
I’m here to give you the tools to navigate the waters and find your own way: If I do my job right, you won’t need to work with me beyond our sessions. It’s my job to help you build up the skills, experience & confidence to move forward on your own, maintaining a successful career as a public scholar.
Together, we will achieve your goals: My purpose is to help you succeed. I am dedicated to ensuring you meet your goals by the end of our sessions. In the oft lonely world of academia, this program thrives on accountability and support.
