Mitacs Networking Skills Workshop

October 04, 2017

A good network is vital to career growth and can be your link to important new opportunities. However, getting started or knowing how to grow an existing network can be intimidating. This workshop will give you insights into how to establish and expand a stable network, both in-person and online.

The Mitacs Networking Skills Workshop will be facilitated by best-selling authors Gayle Hallgren-Rezac and Judy Thomson, Gayle and Judy teach their trademarked style of networking called Positive Networking®, which has been called “the world’s best definition of networking.” They have given hundreds of presentations on networking, engaged leadership, the art of conversation and storytelling to corporations, associations, governments and graduate schools of business around the world. 

In this workshop, you will learn to:

  • Plan and prepare for networking opportunities
  • Share contacts effectively
  • Refresh and build existing networks, both virtually and in-person
  • Make an impact on important contacts

The Mitacs Networking Skills Workshop will take place on October 12, 2017 from 9:00am-5:00pm in WMC 2522 (Burnaby Campus). The workshop is free for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, but a $50 late cancellation fee may apply to cancellations occurring within 5 days of the workshop.
