Life Sciences Professional Development Event — Shameless Self Promotion

Just because you work hard does not mean that you will attain awards.  Rather than waiting for it to happen, it is important to have a strategy to promote yourself and “put yourself out there”.  Develop your 1 minute pitch and present yourself effectively for awards, grants and promotions.

This workshop will look at:

  • Asking for what you want
  • Why waiting isn’t enough
  • Using convincing language
  • Self promotion
  • Networking, mentoring and collaborating
  • Putting yourself in the spotlight
  • Media and other methods to communicate

Your Presenter: Hugh Kearns from Thinkwell
