Ignite the "Meet"ing

Sunday, 16 June, 1530–1700 hrs
Peacock Terrace

Nothing can be more intimidating than being a newcomer or young person at a conference or event where everyone already knows one another! At this high-energy and fun workshop, attendees will gather tips and techniques on networking and relationship building that will make the event more enjoyable and productive. We’ll focus in on creating an introduction, understanding how to engage with others, playing off the unique networking styles of introverts and extroverts, and some of the absolute do nots of networking. Then the interaction kicks in with an activity designed to foster quick friendships so that throughout the conference the participants will never enter a session or party where they are the stranger!

Rising Leaders are graduate students and professionals that are 35 and younger. They are the persons that will become the leaders of tomorrow, the inventors of the next great things, and the individuals that will accept the mantle from those that have forged the way thus far.
