Hi! I’m Dr. Echo Rivera, the owner & founder of Creative Research Communications LLC.

We are ready to help you create stellar slides, visual reports, and other creative products to help you communicate your work.

I have 4 core services.

Scroll through this page to learn about my: (1) Group training, (2) online professional development courses, (3) 1:1 video sessions, and (4) “done for you” design services.


Why work with me?

I have a PhD and a research/evaluation background of over 12 years. These aren’t superficial strategies just to make your slides “pretty.” This is about how to communicate your work (and data) effectively.

GROUP TRAINING

I’ll train your entire team/lab, department, or organization on how to design effective, engaging presentations.

Captivate with Stellar Slides!

This is my time-tested core curriculum for group trainings. Each one is about 90 minutes and includes BOTH custom makeovers of your group’s slides and time for Q&A.

I can deliver this LIVE to your group (webinars or in-person for select geographical areas).

Custom trainings are also available: don’t hesitate to ask!

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES

I’ll train you how to design effective, engaging, and visual presentations. Group packages are also available.

BOOK A SESSION

These sessions are perfect for those who don’t want to take an online course or who want customized training & design ideas for their important presentation (e.g., job talk, keynote, defense, conference presentation).

You can book a session at any time: when your presentation is an early draft (i.e., a mess) or when it’s further along and you want some more advanced help!

 

“DONE FOR YOU” DESIGN SERVICES

Short on time? Let me make or re-design your work so that it stands out and makes a lasting, positive impression.

I specialize in doing slide design for academics, researchers, evaluators, scientists, and service providers.

But I also can design all kinds of things like conference posters, reports, data visualizations, social media/shareable graphics, comics, cartoons, videos, and more!

INTERESTED BUT NOT SURE WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?

Sometimes a combination approach works best. Either way, send me a quick email or find me on social media and let me know what you’re looking for. I’ll share some recommendations for the services that would be the best fit.
