About the webinar

The #STC20 Summit is only 8 weeks away! It's time to get your networking game on. Kelly Schrank will give tips about getting the most out of networking at conferences and other gatherings before, during, and after the event. If you attend these types of events just to be a passive learner, you are missing great opportunities to make connections with other professionals who can provide insight into the industry, jobs, and technical communication as a practice. Schrank will dispel many myths about networking (for instance, “some people like networking”) and give us actionable tips for setting goals, starting conversations, and remembering names.

Intended Audience

The content will be introductory (e.g., > “101 level”) and will also be valuable to practitioner level attendees.
