Building and Nurturing a Professional Network
 Stephen Scypinski, Ph.D., Vice President, VBI Vaccines Inc.
Live ONLINE workshop

In today’s high-paced and internet-centric environment, it is much easier to build and maintain a professional network than it was in the days of business card files and phone calls. Having an up to date network can be valuable in many situations. For example, who would you call if you were about to undergo a government inspection and needed an experienced opinion?  Where would you turn if your position is being eliminated and you want to know who is hiring?  Who would you contact regarding the reputation of a contractor or consultant you might want to do business with?  In this workshop you will learn how to build, expand, and nurture an up to date scientific professional network that is so essential for these and other circumstances.  Professional social media, such as LinkedIn, present a multitude of opportunities for members to network and communicate with colleagues and friends in their industry.  This presentation will highlight guidance as well as specific examples.
