Speak Science | Science Speak

Technical jargon can create barriers between workforce segments at your company. On the flip side of improving communication skills in scientific leaders, we build customized offerings to help non-science professionals deepen their understanding of the company science.
The organizational ROI for these trainings is improved recognition of new business opportunities and more informed decisions.

What you will learn:
 

  • Biotech terminology

  • Basics on genes, proteins, and tools

  • Custom content specific to the
    focus of your company

Who benefits from this training:

  • Teams with science and
    non-science professionals

  • HR Professionals

  • Recruiters in the Biotech industry

  • Salespeople working with scientists

Why this type of training matters:

"All decisions, whether they are personal, public, or business-related, are based on the decision maker’s beliefs and values. Science can and should help decision makers by shaping their beliefs. Unfortunately, science is not easily accessible to decision makers, and scientists often do not understand decision makers’ information needs."
