Event description

Description

Communicating your vision as a healthtechie is no easy task, whether you're trying to convince a dragons' den to invest or trying to curate your company's public image in the media. This evening will be all about how to tell your story, raise your profile and get the recognition you deserve! Whether you're an individual with a great digital health idea or part of a company with a reputation to manage, this event is sure to be invaluable!

The meetup will be a two-part workshop-style event. First, Will Iredale will get the conversation started on the art of storytelling using mainstream media. He’ll give you the low-down on how to produce credible stories that pack a punch by appealing to the right audience using authoritative and relevant media.

Then we will move into an active workshop session led by Marian Lucia Marquez about how to communicate in the flesh using your voice and your body language. Mariana will bring her background in choreography to help you to embody confidence while telling your healthtech story.

We’ll end the evening with plenty of opportunities to practice communicating your digital health story with time to network with other enthusiastic healthtech community members. Don’t miss out!

Accessibility

We’ve been awarded a Fairer Tech grant from doteveryone to make our events more accessible (woop woop!). If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to £30* per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if you’re not able-bodied, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge?! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too.

Simply fill out this VERY SHORT form and we’ll confirm the expense :-)
