Ready to Maximize Your Impact?

Academics can generate more impact by communicating effectively to external audiences: the media, policy makers, practitioners and alumni, among others. This can lead to: 

- Increased visibility for your institution
- Impacting policy
- Shaping opinions
- Increase in research funding
- Career growth: speaking engagements, consulting gigs, book deals, etc.

The problem is that many academics and researchers haven’t been “media trained” - both in terms of traditional and digital media. 

The Maximize Your Impact book is your resource to overcome this barrier. 

The Maximize Your Impacbook helps you to:

THINK THROUGH YOUR OBJECTIVES

INCREASE VISIBILITY BY DELIVERING YOUR MESSAGE IN THE PRESS

PROMOTE YOUR WORK ON YOUR OWNED CHANNELS (LIKE A BLOG)

ENHANCE YOUR NETWORK VIA
SOCIAL MEDIA

WORKSHOPS FOR YOUR SCHOOL OR ORGANIZATION 


The book itself is based on the curriculum from our different trainings and research over the years. Training academics is the most efficient, economic and effective means to increase an organization’s visibility. Our trainings focus on how academics from different disciples can communicate to public audiences. We customize each workshop so it resonates with the particular audience. Here is just a sampling of some of the feedback:

David Young CEO of VIF International

"The media training sessions provided by Experiential Communications were interactive, effective and highly enjoyable. Kevin has a polished but informal and approachable training style that worked really well for our team. We are already implementing many of the ready-to-use ideas we discussed and have set in motion several longer-term initiatives identified during the sessions.” 

Bill Boulding Dean, Duke University's Fuqua School of Business

“Whether you are considering Kevin’s services for help with messaging strategy or for media training, I give him my highest possible recommendation. Kevin’s work is consistently outstanding.”

Joe Phillips Dean, Albers School of Business at Seattle University

“Kevin Anselmo provided our faculty members with an all-day training workshop on the use of social media to advance their research efforts. Throughout the workshop he continually provided new insights on how these platforms can be used to expand one’s impact and visibility. Some of our faculty are quite media savvy, but even the most knowledgeable were learning many new things from Kevin. He is very good at reading his audience and moving things along at the right pace to keep everyone engaged.”

Maggie Woods Fellow at the Institute for Emerging Issues at NC State University

"Kevin is an absolute professional. We invited him to speak at a training for a group of young social entrepreneurs. He provided helpful tips on how to effectively tailor a message to a variety of audiences, including the media, funders and the general public. He was very flexible and tailored his presentation to our specific group. I absolutely recommend working with Kevin and Experiential Communications!”
