About the webinar
The #STC20 Summit is only 8 weeks away! It's time to get your networking game on. Kelly Schrank will give tips about getting the most out of networking at conferences and other technical communications gatherings before, during, and after the event. These events are not just about passive learning but are also great opportunities to make connections with other professionals. Schrank will dispell many myths about networking, including “some people like networking” and “some people are naturally good at it” and gave us actionable tips for setting goals, starting conversations, and remembering names.
Intended Audience
The content will be introductory (e.g., > “101 level”) and will also be valuable to practitioner level attendees.
