Full Description

Networking is one of the most powerful tools for accelerating and sustaining successful careers.  Networking is about making the right connections and building beneficial relationships.  Learn how to grow your networking skills to influence change and to build collaborative relationships in order to add value for both your career and for your employer. 

Mentoring will always be an integral part of our development, this relationship based process for the transmission of knowledge (relevant to work, career or professional development) will enable us to gain personal and professional skills needed to face the challenges ahead. Its importance becomes evident as we recognize the value of networking, advice and support a mentor can give us when developing a quality and healthy relationship. Building fluency in the use of Networking and Mentoring supports the Soft Skills of Networking, Diversity, Mentoring and Teamwork. 

This 3-hour workshop was developed in collaboration between the SPE Talent Council and the SPE Soft Skills Committee.
