Making small talk is an essential skill that is important for your professional and personal life. Events like conferences, department gatherings, industry sessions and other social situations may require you to be adept at this. It is even important during the interview process. If small talk makes you nervous, come to this interactive workshop where you can practice topics to discuss, strategies for approaching people, entering/exiting conversations gracefully and how to follow-up with people afterwards.
