Prepare What You Can't Prepare For

Successful academic networking rests on a number of things, chiefly among them authentic communication skills. Authenticity might be hindered because one is uncomfortable being in situations in which one needs to react spontaneously, e.g., in typical small talk exchanges, during Q&As, while chairing meetings. Handling situations like that might be even more difficult when having to communicate in English. Even though each situation is unique, all have a few basics in common, and preparing for them is possible. In this workshop you will be introduced to a set of communication skills and strategies that will allow you to be prepared for what you can’t prepare for and be authentic when networking in an academic setting.

Input sessions are followed by exercises and feedback rounds.

Part 1 of the workshop will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 19, from 1:30-5:30 p.m.; Part 2 will follow on Wednesday, Sept. 20, from 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.  

Please note that a participation fee of 5€ will be charged for this workshop and collected on site.
