Our workshops and lectures are ideal to introduce a topic or teach a specific technique. Based on the number of participants and duration we can make the workshop interactive or more lecture-style. Either way, the audience will learn new insights and skills that they can apply to improve their research stories.


Custom solutions from ResearchStories start with assessing your situation and needs. Use this step-by-step process to find out which workshop and format work best for you and your colleagues.

Design Principles

Hardcore design theory! Focus on the “why” of design. Learn how to minimize your audience’s cognitive load, so they can save capacity to process and understand your key message.

Data Visualization with Microsoft Excel

Excel is a great tool for building graphs. Move beyond distracting default settings and make dumbbell dot plots, panel bars, and more visuals that will communicate your data story better.

Social Media Strategies for Research

Break out of the confines of published articles and conference audiences. Social media can help you reach a wider audience. We’ll help you build a strategy that will get you ready to go viral.

Preparing Readable Reports

Do you worry about your reader losing interest in long reports? Give your reports a professional look and feel that helps readers navigate them easily.

PowerPoint Magic for Dynamic Presentations

Put an end to death by PowerPoint. Build dynamic presentations that use delicate animations so strengthen your story. Your PowerPoint will follow you instead of leading you, plus you’ll build in shortcuts and pathways that will help you move smoothly through your presentation. Bye bye, scrolling through slides!
