Their work on academic skills has been featured in The Guardian, Times Higher Education, and various professional journals. They have spoken and led interdisciplinary workshops throughout Canada and all over the world on aspects of academic work, including: incorporating values, developing success indicators, successful failure, writing publications for impact, grantsmanship, and much more.

Workshop Description:  Academic work is the most challenging type of knowledge work. Difficult enough during calm seas, the current intense challenges compound this difficulty—leading to many feeling ever-stretched, struggling, and adrift.

In this interactive online session, take time out to reflect—and learn how personalized values-based strategies can foster focus, success, and wellness across your work and life. Providing key tools and career resources using cutting-edge research, theory, and the facilitator’s internationally critically-acclaimed book "How to be a Happy Academic", this participatory session offers practical strategies and insights everyone can use in this most difficult period of disruption and change. Using a unique integrated system for work—no matter your career stage, role, or discipline— you will never see and do academic work the same way again.
