Creating Impact: Webinar Series for Churchill Fellows


Are you keen to share what you discovered on your Fellowship far and wide? 

Communicating what you’ve learned is one of the best ways to make a real impact with your findings, but how do you do it?

In partnership with Lumin, we are pleased to launch a series of webinars in 2019 available to all Churchill Fellows focussing on the theme IMPACT.

Lumin provides actionable, self-directed training courses to help you build the skills you need to successfully communicate, market yourself and effectively engage with stakeholders to secure understanding, funding, and support.

When you sign up to one of these webinars you will also receive a week of complimentary access to Lumin to get up to speed before the session.

You’ll take away insights around how to create measurable change, be targeted in action, share the story of your Fellowship and take your journey further. Every session will include a 30 minute presentation and 30 minutes of question time. The team invites you to prepare any questions you have for insights and feedback. Alongside each webinar, Lumin will provide resources to assist every attendee in building their own plan, narrative and pitch.

These webinars are being delivered as a series so we encourage you to register for all 4 webinars to ensure a complete learning experience (details and registration links below). You are, of course, welcome to register to single webinars should you wish to. 

**Please note we will be recording these webinar sessions. If you are a Fellow who is hearing impaired or you cannot make the session time, please register for the session. We will email a copy of the recording (including a transcription) to all registrants following the webinar.
