The ability to breakdown complex information for a range of audiences, including lay audiences not expert in your area, is one of the key skills to develop during your doctorate. This retreat will give you an opportunity to develop and practice the communication skills and tools you need as an effective researcher and which are considered valuable, regardless of the eventual sector you work in.
