Liesbeth combines her knowledge of science communication, technology and design to teach you how to communicate better to any audience. She asks tough questions to make sure you create real impact, and she’s excited to share her decade of design experience with you.
Her workshops are brimming with practical tips that you can apply immediately to your reports, presentations, posters and infographics. By following one of Liesbeth’s workshops you will learn the skills you need to get people to pay attention to your message.
As a research team, we enjoyed this workshop! Liesbeth explains with clear examples how you can make more impact with your research by thinking a step further. An interactive workshop with a lot of positive energy!”
Thanks a lot for the super cool workshop. The tips and tools provided were super useful and I really enjoyed the hands-on exercises!
Liesbeth and Stephan inspired me to think better about the communication of my research. I thought it was especially cool to learn how to convey a message in such a way that you can attract attention even with the most complex topics. In the future I will package all my messages in a more creative format."
