MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Our vision and how we work

Our vision is that staff are empowered to ensure that research undertaken in universities achieves maximum benefit for the economy and society. Our mission is to work with individuals, universities and the users of research, including business, the public and voluntary sectors, civic society and communities to achieve this goal. Our coaching offer aims to help our clients reach their potential through a deep understanding of themselves and overcoming any difficulties.

We will listen to you to understand your requirements and make suggestions about ways to address them. Most of our assignments are bespoke to ensure we meet your needs. We will collaborate with you to scope out the work, considering both your long-term and short-term requirements. We will encourage you to be ambitious and creative in your approach. You are in the driving seat, including if you are a coaching client.

Jenny Ames Services

Research leadership and management

We work with universities particularly regarding their preparations for research evaluation exercises, including the UK Research Excellence Framework (REF). We are in demand to advise and assist with the development of research impact case studies across all subject areas. This includes workshops, review of developing case studies and one-to-one sessions (either face to face or virtually e.g., via Skype) with case study authors.

Initiation and nurturing of cross-sector collaborations

Perhaps you are a small organisation with a limited network or a university researcher with an idea that might have commercial potential. Or maybe you are part of the leadership team of a university or large business and have been tasked to address a complex problem requiring expertise from a range of people possessing different expertise and coming from different sectors. Whatever your current challenge, Jenny Ames Consulting can help you to identify potential collaborators, broker initial meetings, nurture relationships, and facilitate workshops involving multiple organisations.
