Get Visible, Stay Viable
Know it Out Loud partners with academics and their institutions to advance academic research and accelerate impact through communications strategies that encourage an entrepreneurial mindset internally and promote visibility externally, cultivate advocates and attract diverse and sustained investment.
In an era where government funding is unpredictable and the value of higher education is in question, it is critically important for universities to communicate the public benefits of their research. Public awareness of research impact drives reputation, rankings and funding. Empowering academics to share what they know ensures they have the best chance of making the breakthrough discoveries that will build a better world.
Hi, I'm Julie Chiron, Founder of Know it Out Loud
In my 25 years as a strategic communicator, tech entrepreneur, and communications pioneer, I've transformed thousands of ideas into compelling narrative for every audience and purpose. Whether raising millions of dollars for academic and private enterprise, elevating the street cred of exceptional scholars and indie thinkers, or translating geekspeak for early adopters, I thrive in the space where good ideas are transformed into realized opportunity. My passion for academic research has been developed over 15 years serving in leadership roles in fundraising communications at some of the top research universities in the country. I specialize in advising academic researchers on how to present their work so that it engages with the public and attracts sustained investment.
Are you ready to be heard? I'm listening.
Do you struggle to explain what you do outside your circle of peers? Is your breakthrough idea not getting the traction — or support and resources — it deserves? Do you have an funding opportunity that is important enough that you're willing to invest a little extra in getting it right?
I partner with individuals and their institutions to advance research and funding objectives through accessible, targeted, and thought-provoking communications that address a full spectrum of needs.
- Translate your research to connect with any audience.
- Engage advocates and influence outcome.
- Attract funding with a compelling case and proven impact.
