Marketing and communicating science
Expert science communication
that conveys the value of your research
to the market, the media, investors and funding bodies
Properly funded research makes the biggest impact. Impactful research is amplified by expert communication that ensures the greatest reach and understanding.
And achieving the greatest reach and understanding means more people acting on your research, whether your audience is government, the private sector, individuals or the investors who can turn your research into commercial reality.
We can help
How we help research institutions with marketing and communications
Our research clients rely on our skills to make sure:
Communications agency designed with science at the core
Plain Speaking Health was founded by a clinician with more than a decade of additional experience in business, innovation, health tech, and eHealth consulting for PwC and Queensland Health. In every one of those roles, it was vital to clearly communicate facts and science. That’s why our team is recruited for its deep experience communicating for science-based organisations.
As a result of that experience, every one of us knows the terrain you’re working in. We know the challenges of working across dozens of labs breaking ground in different disciplines over potentially hundreds of projects. We know how to ask the right questions, assimilate information quickly and get deep into the research.
Most importantly, we know how to turn what we learn into communications that are clear to the audience and respectful of the science. And we know how to do it in ways that are consistent with the organisation’s strategy and brand.
Our science background combined with marketing expertise is why communications and marketing managers trust us to scale their always-stretched communications teams. We can bring additional skills or add extra resources when the pressure is on, whether that’s nailing a grant application or amplifying a fundraising initiative.
How we work with researchers
All research is unique, but researchers share traits.
No one can have a PhD in every discipline, but our team is fluent in science. And while we’re not frightened to ask “dumb” questions on behalf of your audience, we do our homework first. That way, we’re always making the most of the face-to-face time we have with your researchers.
