Establishing yourself as an Expert through Strategic Communication
Date & Time
Today’s trajectories of younger researchers in many fields are compressed, creating an incentive for you to be proactive in quickly making your voice heard. Being recognized as an expert can lead to opportunities like conferences, grants, maybe even jobs. Social media and other forms of communications allow you to control how you present yourself as an expert, but they also require some intentionality and strategy. Dr. Julian Dierkes hopes to persuade you that you should get started on establishing yourself as an expert voice, even before you think of yourself as an expert. He’ll also talk about how to go about doing that.
Dr. Julian Dierkes is the Associate Dean, Funding, Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, and is responsible for providing academic leadership in graduate student funding, liaising with external agencies and donors, promoting student success in award competitions, and supporting programs in their responsibilities related to student financial support. He is an Associate Professor and Keidanren Chair in Japanese Research in UBC’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs.
