It’s time again for our ever popular speed networking event July 23rd! We hold this occasion semiannually and we always get a big, enthusiastic crowd. This time we’ll focus on helping you build the team which will help meet your goals. We’ll provide useful information and you’ll get the opportunity to connect with many biotech and life science professionals in a fun environment.
Building a team is important whether you’re looking for a job, searching for new clients, or just want to get to know people in the industry. At our events you’ll meet everyone from grad students to CEOs, and we’ve heard many great stories about useful connections that have been made through the SDBN. If you want to know how speed networking works, check out this guide.
These days, there are many tools you can use to build your team, including professional societies, LinkedIn, and other types of social media. During registration, we’ll ask you a few questions, and we’ll tailor an interactive presentation for the event which will help you find the right connections. We’ve also set up this LinkedIn event so that you can not only see who’s attending, but connect with them as well.
Register now and get those business cards ready!
