About the event
The idea of networking makes many of us uncomfortable. Yet, a mountain of research shows that professional networks lead to more job and business opportunities, broader and deeper knowledge, improved capacity to innovate, faster advancement, and greater status and authority.
Fortunately, an aversion to networking can be overcome, even for introverts! In the 12th webinar of the "Small Wins" series, ARC Laureate Fellow Sharon Parker (Curtin University) will lead a discussion on how to become more excited about, efficient and effective at building relationships, especially when time for networking is scarce. She will be joined by ARC Laureate Fellows, Professor Sharon Friel (Australian National University) and Professor Nanda Dasgupta (Australian National University) who will share their experience and tips. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to the guests. We hope to see you online!
