Growing your luck
Venue: Room 4.31, University of Edinburgh Informatics Forum, 10 Crichton Street, Edinburgh.
Refreshments and networking from 6:00 pm. the event will start at 6:30 pm.
What makes for a good network? Why do some people seem to get all the luck?
BCSWomen Scotland is delighted to announce an event featuring Dr Sara Shinton, Head of Researcher Development at The University of Edinburgh.
If the thought of networking makes your toes curl, this talk will explore what makes an effective network and what you can do to help opportunities reach you.
We will look at the barriers some of us experience when networking and those that we put up to avoid it. You’ll hopefully leave with some ideas on developing networking skills that suit you and can be sustained.
This is a joint event with BCS Edinburgh branch.
All are welcome!
This event is free of charge and open to all, though please register via Eventbrite: https://bcsedin0606.eventbrite.co.uk/
