If you work within the research community and lead or participate in projects in any profession (principal investigator, professor, researcher, data scientist, manager, etc.), a huge amount of commitment and expertise is required to move projects from inception to completion. Multi-tasking, shifting priorities and resource constraints are common, with focus frequently being on meeting deadlines and moving onto the next project. Often missed in this cycle is the promotion of theyour successes in your work, which is a key contributor to raising your profile in your field.
