It is our first event in Canberra and we couldn’t be more excited! What better way to celebrate than by bringing together women working across the health and medical research sector to build new career connections and learn new skills. We might not always like it, but networking is an important professional skill especially in science where building relationships is important for research collaborations, career progression and job opportunities. Don’t believe us? This study found that the size of a researchers network predicts productivity, promotion, and probability of winning a grant!
To help us get mingling in a meaningful way we are very lucky to have Julia Palmer, Relationship Strategist and CEO of Relatus, as our guest speaker. Julia will remind us of the value of networking and talk us through how to do it and do it well (without the awkwardness!). This session will challenge you to re-think the dynamic of relationships and think about who knows you and, more importantly, who is promoting you. Be inspired to develop new networking strategies to keep you competitive in the future, no matter your career direction.
We look forward to an evening of good food, good company and some new career connections (or, if nothing more, some new friends!).
