Dawn Baxter

Communications Coordinator


Dawn's role as Communications Coordinator involves supporting the business-facing communication activity that Research Services and Impact Innovation and Business (IIB) manages, from writing business features to using social media to spread the word on business activity.

I also work with the Innovation Exeter team based at the Innovation Centre to market their crowd wisdom platform. The platform encourages researchers, student entrepreneurs and early stage businesses to work with mentors and co-create commercially successful businesses.  Alongside this I run a monthly external newsletter and help to coordinate the marketing and communications activity at the Innovation Centre.


Having completed a BA in 2005 at the University of Exeter I revisited the University in 2008 to work with Peninsula Innovations Ltd (The Innovation Centre management team) as a Support Officer providing support to clients and ensuring the smooth running of facilities and services. In 2010 I joined the Research Services and IIB team as an Events Coordinator delivering a wide portfolio of events from College workshops to VIP events.

I moved from there to my current role in 2012.
