Welcome Back Event – Session 1
19th October 2021 2-4.30pm, Zoom
The event will provide an update about LAHP and the opportunity to meet other LAHP students, alumni and cultural partners, followed by an interactive session on networking led by Daniela Bultoc.
Daniela will lead an activity-based skills session which will explore the techniques and benefits of networking as a researcher. It gives participants the opportunity to identify the benefits that can be gained through effective networking and it illustrates how networking is a skill that can be developed and used throughout life, and especially in supporting you build your own professional network. The session aims to help participants think about the importance of their existing networks and also develop and maintain co-operative networks and working relationships with supervisors, colleagues and peers, within the institution and the wider research community.
