We help people say 'I can!'
The ThinkWrite model places thinking before writing, removing barriers, saving time and increasing success. Its process-driven approach adds clarity to the final text, while minimising the time spent on each task.
Whether you are writing up your research, planning a talk, sending an email, writing a grant bid or building a conference poster, we believe there are five key questions you need to consider.
A 90-second animation - that's well worth a watch...
1. Who are you, and what role are you playing?
2. What are you hoping to achieve?
3. What exactly are you trying to say?
4. How is this piece of work structured?
5. Who is the gatekeeper?
Each of our workshops takes this basic thinking tool and applies it to a different area of communication. Delivered normally as one-day events, the workshops combine instruction with space to work and laugh. While we create bespoke materials for specific needs, we are most frequently asked to deliver:
The workshop gives strategies which will enable you to write with greater speed and confidence, at the same time as increasing your chance of getting published in your target journal.
My Thesis in 10 Steps
This workshop presents a structured approach to planning a thesis that helps you place the research into a document that meets your university’s requirements. It helps you develop a monthly timetable that maximizes your chances of delivering on time
Conference Abstracts and Posters
You will discover how to write an abstract that meets expectations and gets you invited to the conference. The workshop then looks at the challenges and opportunities that occur when creating and presenting an academic poster.
Writing Targeted Grant Proposals
The day gives participants the opportunity to expand their ideas on available funding sources, and investigate what funders want to achieve when they hand over money.
Speaking with Confidence
In short courses, or through long-term coaching, we can help boost your confidence. We can help you prepare, plan and practice so that when you are on the 'stage' you can concentrate more on the content than on the performance.
Workshops have value, but there is often additional benefit if they can be followed up with 1-to-1 coaching. ThinkWrite's growing band of facilitators have experience in many different forms of communication, and are available for bespoke coaching tasks, either face-to-face or on-line.
