Panel Organized by: Sean Young-Steinberg, NIVA Inc.

While most science and technology-based organizations have a strong desire or obligation to mobilize knowledge for decision makers, stakeholders, and the public, many of them lack the tools, training, or internal resources to do so effectively. In 2019, it is one thing to say that science communication is a priority, and another to make a genuine commitment to developing clear, understandable, and relevant communication products that will connect with your target audiences. Anton Holland has 30 years of experience in helping clients transform complex scientific and technical information into powerful communications. In this mini workshop, he will share some important concepts, best practices, lessons learned, and case studies that will inspire you to finally move forward with delivering messages and narratives that will engage, inform, and motivate action.
