Following on from the previous successful events, the day will enable participants to discover how to make the most out of different networking methods, both in the physical and virtual worlds.
The day’s overall theme is around the ways in which communicating with colleagues can enhance our skills and knowledge. While we were once limited to meetings, phone calls or email, there are now a multitude of ways for us to keep in touch, ask questions, market and learn. This will be a highly participative day, enabling attendees to share their experiences and best practice.
