Improving Your Networking Skills-Faculty Dinner
Apr 17 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Whether you are a passionate extrovert or mysterious introvert, networking is a necessity. Strong professional networks “lead to more job opportunities, broader and deeper knowledge, improved capacity to innovate, faster advancement, and greater status and authority.” [HBR] Next time you are at ACS, SUS, or any society meeting, how can you optimize your networking without feeling drained?  You are invited to meet Stanford Graduate School of Business lecturer Matt Abrahams – a leading expert in communication with decades of experience as an educator, author, podcast host, and coach.   Matt Abrahams will discuss his new book  “Think FasterTalk Smarter” and all attendees will be given a copy of the book.  Matt’s presentation will provide tips on how to succeed when you must speak spontaneously.
