Private Workshop: The Hersheys Company

November 16, 2017 — Please see your agenda for detailed times and locations.

A team from the Alda Center will visit The Hershey's Company research and development team to help them to communicate more effectively with people outside their field, including the general public, policy makers, the media, students, potential employers or funders, and prospective collaborators in other disciplines. Through discussion and practice, we will focus on fundamental skills — knowing your audience, connecting with your audience, and speaking clearly and conversationally about your work and why it matters. This event is private, with participation by invitation only.
