Networking Workshop: Making Science Connections - Wellington

  • AM 101 Alan MacDiarmid Building

It’s not about what you know but who you know. Networking is a supremely useful talent, a talent that can be honed and developed. Networking can lead to new job opportunities, post-graduate positions and even research funding. In New Zealand it is easier for us to communicate, and ultimately collaborate because of our island-nation-networking where one contact can easily link you to another.  So join us for a fun interactive evening workshop and learn networking skills and strategies from the best.
