Conferences can be wonderful opportunities to showcase your research, learn from others in the field, and also develop a strong network of people who can impact your professional growth. In this workshop we will practice making small talk and networking with others during a conference. We'll also cover tips and strategies on what to wear, how to ask engaging questions during sessions and the best ways to prepare overall.
