Leadership Series: Communication as a Science

September 20, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Since 2015, BioOhio has hosted two full-day Women in Bioscience Conferences, and two half-day workshops, featuring speakers covering topics such as career paths, mentoring, networking, communication strategies, and success stories.

BioOhio’s goal in holding these events is to highlight numerous bioscience career options, for scientific and non-scientific jobs, along with practical concepts to advance women in the bioscience industry.

To continue this mission, BioOhio is hosting a series of breakfast workshops around the state in 2017. The goal is to highlight topics that will provide tools needed to advance into leadership positions.

Next Up: Communication as a Science

While these events are geared towards women, we highly encourage male advocates to attend as well.

Redefining Leadership: Communication as a Science

Are you a scientist, technician, engineer, business professional, researcher or operator who is more comfortable analyzing formulas and rations than talking about them? Do you ever feel like the more you talk about the technical aspects of your science-based job, the less people listen? Melanie will unveil proven formulas (27-9-3, C-C-O, 1N=3P) to help you build rapport with your audience, simplify complex messages, and create a valuable, intellectual idea exchange – all while maintaining the integrity of facts. Once you stop thinking of communication as an art form and begin to understand it as the “science of creating meaning,” you can unleash the impact of your own science on the world!
