Visible and influential: networking at conferences and across cultures
This workshop helps participants develop networking skills for professional meetings and international conferences by identifying opportunities for becoming more visible and influential.
Participants practice for specific academic contexts (team meetings, international conferences and office small talk) and develop strategies to come into contact with senior researchers. Particular attention is given to body language, self-marketing skills (pitching) and long-term strategic networking competences. A mix of theory and practice provides participants with the opportunity to learn how to approach, engage and build a relationship with key professional figures so as to become both more visible and influential in one’s own academic field.
Role-play and real-life situations, theoretical sessions to understand, hands-on exercises for practicing, Video recording and reviewing, both group and individual feedback.
On the first day, participants attend the workshop all together as a single group for the whole time.
On the second day, the participants join the trainer for a series of one-to-one sessions characterised by a dedicated tailor-made approach. The exact length and times of each session will be agreed on the previous day (also depending on the total number of participants that joined the course the previous day). Appointments are possible between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
