On March 28th, Roger D. Aines and Amy L. Aines, authors of Championing Science: Communicating Your Ideas to Decision Makers, conducted a webinar entitled “Relationship-Building and Influence: Tips for Getting Sponsors to Support Your Science”.

The webinar was hosted with the support of the Alda Center for Communicating Science and The Kavli Foundation, and focused on learning how to identify your primary influence style, building trust and rapport to foster productive relationships with sponsors, and how to earn a reputation as a “go to” resource for funders of scientific research. Below is a video recording of the webinar, which offers examples and contextualization as to why Roger and Amy Aines were impassioned to write Championing Science.
