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.

Words from our raving fans!

  • Instructive and engaging workshop

    Thanks for an instructive and engaging workshop. It was really timely. I went straight to a research project planning meeting and could make suggestions to our design so we could capture metrics around impact which was great.

  • Has given us valuable tools to create a research project that will have great impact.

    We brought Tamika in to support us in commencing a Participatory Action Research project that will have high impact in CFA. Tamika has been great to work with right from the start and has given us valuable tools to create a research project that will have great impact. Through this process, we are starting our research off on a solid ground with a shared vision, smart goals and a map of our stakeholders.
