About Experiential Communications

Helping academics, researchers and thought leaders become better communicators.

Academics, researchers and thought leaders have important insights to share with the world. Communicating such insights can generate visibility, influence policy decisions, shape opinions, secure research funding, advance careers and impact society. But many haven’t been trained to communicate knowledge and insights to external audiences. Experiential Communications addresses this gap through three unique approaches.


Just as you wouldn’t learn to drive solely from a handbook, effective communication requires practice. Our customized workshop and coaching experiences are practical and hands-on. Hence the name of our company – Experiential Communications. This approach enables you to communicate your ideas with impact. You will gain confidence. It’s fun, too! 


Messaging is the cornerstone of a communications strategy that drives results. Imagine you are singing in a choir and everyone is using a different song sheet. How will it sound? Or imagine you are about to sing a solo but you have no idea about the words. What is that experience like for you and your audience? Just like singers need clarity around their song sheets, individuals and groups need to be aligned on their messages. Our strategic approach ensures that your messages are clear, concise, embedded in purpose and aligned with your goals. The experience ensures that all stakeholders are singing from the same sheet, leading to harmonious and impactful communication.


Stories have the power to captivate and inspire. We help you unearth such stories through training, coaching or execution of communications strategies as part of ongoing client retainer work. Storytelling principles include:

Co-creation: Experiential Communications bring fresh perspectives and combines this with the client’s knowledge of their organization. Together, we ultimately create a final product that neither of us could have accomplished alone.

So what? If the content doesn’t adequately pass the “so what” test, then let’s eliminate this.

– Simplicity: Less is more.

– Paint a picture: Integrate stories, examples and / or metaphors to communicate important ideas.
