Profile - Raising and Networking for Researchers new Fri 5 Jul 2019   10:00 [Places]

This is a day-long session to help researchers develop strategies for making networking part of a successful career, whether inside or outside research. It focuses on thinking about all of the researchers’ working life as a route to networking, rather than being a course about 'personal impact' in conference coffee breaks.

This course is suitable for both, researchers wishing to stay in academia or moving away from it.

This highly participative workshop will help you develop your ability to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders. In order to be successful in your PhD and academia, you need to be able to communicate and work successfully with others. This one day workshop will help you develop your communication skills in order to engage more effectively with your supervisor, peers, and wider networks.

This session will cover:

  • The communication process
  • Active listening
  • Assertiveness and managing expectations
  • Feedback frameworks
  • Working in collaboration with others
  • Stakeholder mapping
