Be sure to add a meaningful photo so that it will grab peoples’ attention. Include the Twitter handles of any peak bodies or organisations that you would like this to reach.

Pin the Tweet to your profile so it will be the first thing people see when they visit your page.

Use our Twitter handle @ChurchillTrust when sharing anything related to your Fellowship.

Facebook 

Post a status update on Facebook letting all your friends know that your report is now online and share the link with them. Perhaps lead with a question or an interesting thing you learned on your Fellowship to make it more engaging.

Tips and ideas for the dissemination of your report


Churchill Fellows are diverse and work in many different spaces. You need to think of the best strategy to ensure your research is shared in the most effective way. Below are some suggestions but of course are not the only methods you can utilise:
 

  • Ask your employer to share your report within your org, maybe they could do a short interview with you and share this piece on the company web-page

  • Share with your staff through an email or post on your organisation's Intranet

  • Check out government public consultations currently open for submission

  • Submit to various journal platforms – Researchgate, APO etc

  • Check out upcoming conferences relevant to your field and approach them for speaking opportunities and submit abstracts

  • If relevant to your org, prepare a presentation sharing your findings from your Churchill Fellowship

  • If sponsored, share the report with your sponsor and ask if they would like to arrange a meeting for you to go through your research

  • Set up an independent event where you present a talk to interested parties

  • Share report with the contacts you made overseas

  • The Churchill Trust can create a post on Facebook and Twitter about your report

  • Search for upcoming idea sharing platforms such as TEDx for presentation opportunities

  • Organise meetings with interested stakeholders to share research with them
