Compelling communication is a key skill for the future of work.

Whether we are pitching a business idea, presenting a project to our colleagues/stakeholders, or talking to customers, we need to be able to interest, convince and influence with our words.

In this workshop you will:

  • understand the fundamentals of narrative patterns and tools
  • learn how to communicate their message in a simple and concise way
  • learn how to build a compelling story and how to persuade their audience
  • practice and master the art of storytelling

About Entrepreneurship

We are now entering a new era where there is demand for commercial returns of publicly funded research: research that is transformational, innovative and solution-focused. It is important for any researcher to understand the possibilities and processes that connect research outcomes to the generation of commercial intellectual property and the varied strategies for turning this commercial IP into new products, processes and services. The Graduate School works actively in the entrepreneurship space with UQ Ventures and UQ's commercialisation arm, Uniquest
