Words from our raving fans!
The workshop was made accessible to all participants irrespective of their academic experience. Because of this, it really helped me to take away some practical tips and feel equipped to apply them to my own work. Highly recommend.
I enjoyed the workshop very much and I left with a solid understanding of how I could build impact pathways into my project design.
Tamika is a very engaging, knowledgeable and patient presenter. I enjoyed the workshop very much and I left with a solid understanding of how I could build impact pathways into my project design. I hadn’t thought about that before, and now I not only have an understanding of how to engage in knowledge translation, Tamika has given me the tools I need for that translation to generate real impact with my end users. And that’s what research should be about.
The session was wonderful, I’ve already updated my impact statements and had some glowing reviews about the new version. Thank you for being supportive and encouraging, as well!
I am excited and relieved to be successful for an NHMRC investigator award. Your session on preparing for this grant enabled me to get my head around what might be required in terms of research impact, and helped me articulate my research impact for the application. Thanks to your workshop, I learnt this important skill.

Dr Tamika Heiden – Head Inspirer, Research Impact Academy
Hi, I’m Tamika Heiden, Head Inspirer and Founder.
I don’t know about you, but I became a researcher so that I could change the world! I guess I was a bit optimistic, but I really wanted to discover new things, I wanted to help people, and I wanted to make a difference somehow. These are values that have stayed with me, but I have realised that research alone, and the discovery of new evidence alone, will not make the difference that I was aiming for. I have realised the need to work in new ways to ensure that the findings of research get to the people who need to know about it, or who need to use it. Importantly, I have found and learnt proven methods, models and frameworks that can help.
