Workshops & lectures
FrankNu provides various training courses, workshops and (guest) lectures, such as popular writing, giving an oral pitch, writing press releases, dealing with the media, the basics of science communication and marketing yourself as an early-career scientist.
FrankNu advises on how best to achieve your communication goal(s). Get in touch for a one-on-one conversation or a brainstorming session. We will discuss the results face-to-face and they are recorded in an action-oriented communication plan.
Do you have a specific challenge ahead of you? An important presentation at a conference, an interview with the press, an opinion piece that you would like to submit to a newspaper, increase your visibility when applying for a scholarship or a job? FrankNu is happy to help you.

The tools of FrankNu
FrankNu has four core tools available for every communication solution: storytelling, connecting, innovating and imagining.
Some of the best ideas arise in collaborations, especially when they are multidisciplinary. Collaborations with partners or with the target audience. A brainstorming session with different stakeholders, each with their own perspective, can give a project new impetus.
The most frequently heard request to the communication professional is: make a press release, flyer and website. Sometimes that is sufficient, but often a more innovative mix of communication tools works better. As Frankwatching puts it: “Make sure that with your content you get the right story in the right form at the right time through the right channel to the right person.”
