Fellowship holders need to take stock of their career at this pivotal stage. This course borrows successful visual planning tools from the start-up culture to do just that. Combining the Kanban and business model canvas methodologies, this course is an insightful and interactive half day event. Participants will explore the fellowship field of endeavour (the wealth of things they need to do) and look at where they can maximise value for themselves with a view to their future careers.

The use of business tools will bring a fresh way of thinking about not only research projects but the wider setting in which these sit. Including stakeholders, networking and communication into a professional career plan will necessarily raise awareness of the value and impact of you and your research.

Key areas

  • To have a fuller understanding of what the fellowship role encompasses
  • To meet other fellows
  • To use visual planning tools to explore career direction/plans
  • To aid thinking about value (and impact) both personally and with research projects

Further information: Priority for this course will be given to fellows.
